Trans people are just as ordinary and extraordinary as everyone else! Join us for a panel discussion, with stories and conversation with a group of fabulous trans people:

  • Krysta Petrie (she/her) is an engineer, singer, maker, crafter, tinkerer, woodworker, and all-around nerd. She lives in Greater Boston with her wife Katie, dog Porter, cat Steve, and two sugar gliders. She holds several identities: transgender, queer, sapphic, and feminist, among others.

  • Noah Stang-Osborne (they/he), a speaker, activist, member of LexPride’s Board of Directors, and art therapy student at Lesley University. Noah holds several identities: Black, Crow, disabled, trans, nonbinary, and queer.
  • Parker Morii-Sciolla (they/them), a speaker, cosplay aficionado, and architecture student at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Parker holds several identities: Japanese-American, Italian-American, and trans (nonbinary, agender).

The panelists will share their stories and answer questions about their favorite depictions of trans people in books and film, what else the community should know about trans people, and what allyship looks like.

In addition to the Belmont Public Library, this event is co-sponsored by Belmont LGBTQ+ Alliance, Belmont Human Rights Commission, LexPride, Arlington LGBTQIA+ Rainbow Commission, Cambridge LGBTQ+ Commission, Quincy LGBTQ Commission, and Network for Social Justice
