Here is the working workshop schedule for the South Bay Trans Day of Visibility; April 1 at the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Center. It is subject to change without notice, because… things change. Your participation is wanted: ask questions, share your experiences as appropriate. We are in this together.
Workshops are scheduled for 60 minutes with a 15 minute slack period between… sometimes things run a bit over, or you want to grab a snack before heading to the next discussion. You can do it!
