BI4J Presents a Panel Discussion on “Supporting Our Child’s Transition”

Please join BodyImage4Justice, along with the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, Greater Boston PFLAG, the Livingston Pangburn Transgender Access Partnership, and many others for a lively panel discussion on raising and supporting transgender children moderated by Corey Yarbrough of the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition.

This event will take place on Wednesday, December 4th at Fong Auditorium, Boylston Hall at Harvard University from 6:00-9:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served, and short massage therapy sessions will be available before and after the panel discussion.

BodyImage4Justice believes that the foundation of health is a positive body image and sense of self, which is strongly influenced by our relationship with our parents and family. This panel discussion will help trans children who face challenges in coming out to their families, offer tools and strategies to build a supportive relationship between parents and children, and provide resources for both parents and children to understand each other and navigate the process of transition together.

BodyImage4Justice will also honor the parents of the Livingston Pangburn Transgender Access Partnership (TAP) at this event for their contributions to the Boston transgender community. TAP is a Greater Boston PFLAG initiative that was created in memory of Livingston Pangburn, a transgender Hampshire College student who was killed in a bicycle accident earlier this year. TAP seeks to both increase services available and reach out to underserved, disenfranchised transgender youth and their families.

We hope you and your family will join us for this event!
