This event series began two years ago, and has toured to well over a dozen libraries, schools, and churches across the state, educating the general public about what it means to be a transgender person in New Hampshire. The event will begin with our panelists sharing a little bit about themselves, then the rest of the evening will be a moderated conversation between panelists and audience.
