“Transgender 101,” a comfortable and informal talk by Jill Celentano, will be presented on Sunday, April 28 at Orange Congregational Church, 205 Meeting House Lane, Orange, from 11:30 am to 12:45 pm in the John Ho Dining Room.
Jill, a transgender woman who transitioned about four years ago, will discuss the coming out, transition and acceptance process, plus the right and wrong questions to ask others. She will share her personal journey, victories and hardships, and she will be happy to answer questions. Refreshments will be served.
This presentation is being held in conjunction with the celebration of the 2nd anniversary of Orange Congregational Church adopting a covenant as an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. ONA is an official designation of congregations and other settings in the United Church of Christ (UCC) affirming the full inclusion of persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.
