Gavin Grimm will be a guest speaker at Capital Trans Pride that takes place on Saturday May 20th at Studio Theatre, 1501 14th St NW, Washington, DC from 9A to 7P. Gavin Grimm is the transgender male student at Gloucester High School in Virginia whose suit against the local Virginia school board brought national attention to trans issues for the right to use the bathroom of his choice. This annual event brings together members of the transgender community, allies, colleagues & friends for a day of workshops & panel discussions on a variety of issues important to our transgender community. Bianca Rey, Executive Producer of Capital Trans Pride stated, “Capital Trans Pride brings together the community for both a celebration & to share important information that has the potential to change the lives of those who attend. We’ve made significant progress regarding visibility, empowerment & rights, but now more than ever, we must all continue to work to secure full equality.” Also at the event Capital Pride Engendered Spirit recipients Dr. Stacy Karpen & Hayden Mora will be recognized. The Resource Fair includes participation by more than 25 organizations that provide services & opportunities for the Trans community. Confirmed workshops for Capital Trans Pride include, "Identity Documents and Name Changes," "Safer Sex for Trans Bodies," "Genderqueer 101," "Understanding the Trans Attracted Man" & “Resume Building in English & Spanish” led by Booz Allen Hamilton.
