About the exhibit: AN IRIS STANDS TALL A MOTHER'S JOURNEY, A DAUGHTER'S TRANSITION An art installation of 46 pieces of original art - with an accompanying narrative - by local artist Annette Sabater, who's child began medical treatment to transition from an adolescent boy into a young woman at age sixteen. This unique exhibit traces the experience of a parent as she enters the new and mysterious journey, at times filled with doubt and grief. The collection is rendered in a combination of graphite and oil pastel by a parent who is exploring the deeper understanding of her child.

April 4: Meet The Artist Join the community to see the art installation, and meet artist Annette Sabater.

April 11: Journeys of Transgender Individuals Join a panel of transgender folks as they share their individual journeys along the gender spectrum. The transgender journey is one of hardship, courage, highs and lows but one that is ultimately filled with joy when you become who you truly are.

April 18: Religious Perspectives Join Reverend James Joiner who will speak on queer and trans interpretations of Christian scripture, focusing particularly on Galatians 3:28 “in Christ there is neither male nor female” - and Rabbi Rachel Joseph who will speak on B’tzelem Elohim; "we are all created in the image of God."
