Women's Rights National Historical Park is honored to partner with FLX Pride Festival, LGBTQ Services at the Family Counseling Service of the Finger Lakes, and the We Exist Coalition of the Finger Lakes to present an event called "The Good, the Bad, and the Funny" on Saturday May 20 at 2:00 pm in the Wesleyan Chapel. This event will feature several members of the Transgender Community who will be sharing their stories, followed by a question and answer session.
Shauna Marie O’Toole, Outreach Coordinator with LGBTQ services states, “Coming out as Transgender or Gender Expansive is a tough gig. Everything about you changes! Your name, appearance, pronouns. Every social interaction is changed. The expectations that society puts on all of us change! It's a tough journey and worth the price we pay to be authentic! There are stories that come with every journey. Come hear our stories about the GOOD, the BAD, and the FUNNY!”
Ami Ghazala, Superintendent of Women's Rights National Historical Park, states, “The National Park Service has a mission to tell all Americans’ stories. The recently released LGBTQ Heritage Theme study and the opening of Stonewall National Monument in New York City are a few of the numerous examples of how the agency fulfills this mission.”
