Trans Awareness 101

April 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

(RESCHEDULED FROM MARCH) Connecticut resident and advocate Jillian Celentano will be joining us to host an honest conversation about what transgender means, her experiences as a transgender woman, and how best to support the transgender community.  Whether you are an ally, are seeking to better understand a trans loved one, or just want to learn more, this program is for you.

Jillian is a transgender woman who began her transition at age 55. She recently received her bachelors degree in psychology at Albertus Magnus College, and is now pursuing her master’s degree in social work at Southern Connecticut State University. She is an author, an advocate for the transgender community, a mentor for trans youth, and has organized support groups for transgender children and young adults. Jillian has interned at the Yale Gender Program and is currently involved in two transgender studies at Yale.  She will have copies of her book “Transitioning Later in Life: A Personal Guide” available for sale at the program.

This program is for all ages and will be held in-person at the library.  Registration is required so we can set up sufficient seating.  Please register here, by phone at 860-693-5800, or by email at smccusker@townofcantonct.org.
