Phoenix Center to hold Transgender 101 class


SPRINGFIELD — The Phoenix Center, the LGBTQ community center for central Illinois, will  hold a Transgender 101 class series for those wanting to be supportive of transgender friends and family.

From the Facebook event:

This class has been created for all of those people who call and want to learn more about being transgender. They might have a family member, a co-worker, a neighbor or friend who identifies as transgender and they want to better be able to support and be an ally. The training will include terminology, a discussion of social and medical transitioning, and ideas of what you can do to make your environment (home, work, school, business) more LGBT inclusive.

MT Vann Room at The Phoenix Center
Parking behind the building or across the street in the church parking lot.

The class will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 6 p.m. and Friday, Nov. 16, at 11 a.m. Both classes will be at the Phoenix Center at 109 E. Lawrence Ave. in Springfield.
