This unique event will be hosted by IYG’s Lane Banister & Hoosier author Chrissy Garrison.
Participants will engage with Indiana trans advocacy and support organizations at our free Health and Wellness Fair, 5p – 7p, before listening to writer, film producer, director, and LGBT activist Andrea James share her experience of being trans in Indiana over the years, from 7p to 9p.
