Mom Hugs Here: Perspectives on trans and gender-queer experiences

Our members Lynda Sagrestano and Kristy Koth will be sharing their perspectives and experiences with the trans, nonbinary, and otherwise gender queer community. Kristy is the mom of a trans man who came out after leaving for university. She will talk about her journey accompanying him along his transition and the difficulties she’s faced, even as a liberal, accepting parent.
Lynda is currently part of team applying for EU Horizon funds to reduce barriers and increase access to culturally appropriate health services for LGBTIQ people in the EU. She will add some insights from research on promoting health equity and the mental health of LGBTIQ folks.
