Posted

Grace Church, 216 State Street, Harrisburg, is hosting a support group for parents, siblings, and friends of transgender individuals.

The group's first meeting is scheduled for Mon., Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. in the church’s Guild Room.

As the parent of a transgender son, Angela (last name withheld upon request) told The Central Voice “There is a real need for the group. When my son started his journey, one of the hardest things for me was not having anyone that really understood what I was going through.”

Angela added she had and still has “a wonderful support system, but I always felt like it would be nice to have someone that was going through the same emotions that not only I was experiencing but my son as well to connect with.

“I can’t tell you how happy I was when I received the email” on the group forming.
