Beginning Aug. 15 and continuing every first and third Tuesday of the month, there will be chill sessions called “Girl Talk” for transgender women to discuss issues, ideas, and experiences in a safe space. This is part of Your Trans Care program and STAR TRACK Adolescent Health at the University of Maryland.
These free sessions will take place between 6-9 p.m. at STAR TRACK’s office, 120 Penn St. in Baltimore. There will be free food and health resources available.
“Girl Talk is important to members of the community because it is where transgender women can come out to discuss different topics and come together as a community to create a safe place so that trans women can feel accepted and feel at home,” Ayanna Copeland, the group facilitator and community outreach worker for the Your Trans Care program at STAR TRACK., told the Blade.
STAR TRACK has been serving Baltimore’s LGBTQ youth and young adults, ages 12 to 26, since 1989 by offering outreach, education and prevention services to youth, young adults, and their communities.
