Community Members Hear Transgender 101 Talk

Jess Clark, Education and Prevention Supervisor at Solace Crisis Treatment Center in Santa Fe gave two presentations today in Los Alamos entitled Beyond Blue and Pink – Transgender 101. The first presentation was at the Los Alamos Teen Center to a group of 16 people consisting of eight students and eight adults. The second presentation was held in the Smith’s Marketplace Conference Room where a light dinner was provided to 28 people by Los Alamos Medical Center. Clark focused on helping attendees understand that the sex a person is assigned to at birth may not be the sex they identify with their entire life. He clarified many terms such as gender identity, gender expression and trans male/ trans female and cis-male/cis female. The presentations were cosponsored by Los Alamos Family Council and Solace Crisis Center and the Los Alamos Medical Center. Photo by Jennifer Bartram
