From our Literary Programs Manager, Pablo Cartaya
An incredible lunch with readings by Alex Myers, hearing from community leaders doing advocacy work in Miami on transgender issues.
A closing statement by Samantha Perez who said, “I’ve been a transgender woman since 1976 and struggled and suffered and being at this table now is an such an honor.
Because of the work you all do, girls like me have a place they can turn.”
A beautiful thing.
