Award-winning author and LGBTQ & Civil Rights Advocate Jo Ivester will speak on what it is like to have a transgender son in a world not quite ready for people like him. She is the author of Once a Girl, Always a Boy and The Outskirts of Hope and serves on the boards of Equality Texas, the Anti-Defamation League of Central Texas, and the Texas chapter of GLSEN. Jeremy Ivester is a transgender man. Thirty years ago, his parents welcomed him into the world as their daughter. As a child, he preferred the toys and games our society views as masculine. Once a Girl, Always a Boy is Jeremy's journey from childhood through coming out as transgender and eventually emerging as an advocate for the transgender community. This is not only Jeremy's story but also that of his family, told from multiple perspectives: his own viewpoint and those of his siblings and of his parents. Advanced registration required. For more information, please email KStrauss@CommonpointQueens.org.
