To the Editor:
The Flint Hills Human Rights Project is hosting a presentation and discussion from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 24, on the issues faced by transgender people in our society. The event will be in the lecture hall at the fire station headquarters, at Denison and Kimball avenues. The event is free and open to the public.
Elle Boatman’s presentation, “Beyond the Binary,” will frame the evening’s discussion. She is the founder of The Face of Trans, a Wichita organization. Ms. Boatman’s design is featured on the billboard on K-177, which was paid for by the Flint Hills Human Rights Project.
A panel discussion will follow Ms. Boatman’s presentation. The panel will include Kansas State University student Adam O’Brien; Dr. Dorinda Lambert, director of Counseling Services at KSU; Diana Brightbill, M.D., and Ms. Boatman. Audience members will submit questions on paper to the moderator, who will be Mike Herman, chair of the Flint Hills Human Rights Project
We understand that you may not be sure exactly what it means to be transgender and may have questions. That’s why the Flint Hills Human Rights Project is hosting this event. We hope people will come to listen and have their questions answered.
