Writing your story helps you process you experiences, create clarity for future decision-making, and understand your motivations. During this Tranquility meeting, Self Narrate Inc. Is leading a workshop designed to inspire trans people and allies to craft their stories and embrace power of storytelling to connect with others. We will be working together, in groups and individually for the full 2 hour workshop starting at 7 p.m. Time allowing, individual stories can be shared at the end or you may contact Tranquility with the opportunity to share yours during a future meeting. Sharing is completely optional. We all have a great story to share.
Come join TranQuility as we host a panel discussion which seeks to provide a platform to Transpeople of color and Transpeople with disabilities to share their thoughts with the community! Being transgender can come with it’s own set of difficulties, and at this meeting we will explore how being a member of a minority group relates to individual experience with the transgender community.

Please join us at HealthStreet as we have our own little thrift store of sorts and also celebrate our 2 year anniversary, woot woot ! It would be helpful if everyone brought items that they no longer need/want and we can organize them upon arrival. Items can include: clothing, jewelry, perfume/cologne, makeup, packers, binders, breast forms, hair product, etc. We already have some binders and breast forms that have been donated so they will definitely be there.
