“We’re planning it to be a day where you can walk away having learned something. Or, if you are a member of the trans community, information on such issues as how to get your name changed, or your gender marker,” Sheffield said.
Tracee McDaniel, founder of the Juxtaposed Center for Transformation, says adding more components this year should make the event more exciting — and fun — for participants.
“It’s very important to keep the efforts and contributions of the transgender community out in the open,” McDaniel said. “We’re all one community, and it’s important to have our voices heard.”
