Transgender Rights: a Family’s Journey

Beryl and Vernon Domingo visit the Dighton Public Library on Thursday, October 11 at 6:30. They will share their personal story as parents of a transgender son and their family’s journey from acceptance to advocacy for transgender rights.

This presentation will explore gender identity, transgender rights and the discrimination that transgender people face in their everyday lives. It will also include steps that transgender allies can take to advance social and legal rights for transgender people.

In 2016, the Massachusetts legislature passed a law to fully protect transgender people from discrimination. This law is now under attack. On the November 2018 statewide ballot there will be a referendum question to repeal the non-discriminaton law that protects transgender people in Massachusetts.
