ST. LOUIS — The Metro Trans Umbrella Group is hosting a story sharing workshop this Sunday, March 10.
From the Facebook event:
Following the success and increasing interest in our transgender and non-binary story sharing workshop at the 2018 Trans Spectrum conference, we offered it again in December. It went so well, we are continuing on Sunday FEBRUARY 10th from 1:00pm-4:45 pm at MTUG HQ.
Using fun icebreakers, gentle meditation, conversation and writing prompts, we will help you excavate and amplify your voice in the belief that our stories are essential to community and survival.
Come as you are, with any level of experience and at any point in your process. Whether you identify as transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming OR as an ally, we welcome you.
Snacks will be provided.
