There will be a town hall meeting open to the public this evening put on by a new statewide task force discussing issues concerning Transgender and Gender Non-conforming people. The meeting begins with a meet and greet between 5:30 and 6 p.m. this evening. That will be followed by an event which includes an “open mike” portion. The meeting will be at the Universalist Unitarian Church at 12 ford Avenue in Oneonta. The organizers say the purpose of the meeting is to bring together transgender and gender non-conforming people, their families, friends, and allies to create connections with various communities around New York State. The group is looking to find what the needs of the community members are.
