There is no me in L-G-B-T
While we in the community are often lumped together in an alphabet group so the mainstream will know what to call us, within our community many do not know or understand what it is like to be like each other. That’s why Metro Health and their lead trans counselor, Tristan Byrnes, are organizing “Trans Panel: Community Discussions from a Trans Perspective.”

“There is often a feeling of disconnect between the LGB and Transgender Community. This panel is a place for the LGB and non-transgender community to hear personal stories of transgender and gender-queer experiences and a place to ask questions to assist in bridging this disconnect,” Byrnes says. The event will be Monday, August 24 at 6:00 P.M. at the St. Pete LGBT Center and is open to all. For more information visit metrotambabay.org.
