Shabbat service and cultural program from The City Congregation for Humanistic Judaism:
Suzanne Sherkin is the mother of a transgender son. The experience of supporting her child through the process of transitioning has given her a deeply personal understanding of the trans journey, When she was new to the discussion, she found lots of great resources from trans writers but not many from cis perspectives, so she created one.
In this talk Suzanne discusses her book and provides insights from her lived experience and continued dialogue with the public as well as her research. If you want to know what are the current issues facing trans and gender diverse people, or some words and phrases are valuable, please join us!
