This group is for anyone who is trans/transgender, non-binary, gender queer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, gender questioning/curious, or is otherwise part of the gender-diverse community.</p><p>We honor that every individual is their own expert and every individual has the right to make their own choices including how they explain, understand, address, and describe their lived experience and identities.</p><p>Join us on the 3rd Monday of each month @ 6:30PM-8:00PM EST for a group discussion of If You Give A Trans Person A Book Club’s current book choice. Over the course of 1-3 months (depending on the current book choice), we will be reading one book and participating in open discussions about it during our monthly meetings. We’ll be releasing a schedule so you’ll know exactly what will be discussed at each meeting. Attendance is not mandatory- come as you are whenever you want! Live captions will be provided.</p><p>This book club is being co-facilitated by Bell Giannosa (they/them) and Nicole Torres (she/they).</p><p>This space was made possible through a partnership between Peer Support Space and Basically Wonderful.</p><p>Learn more about Peer Support Space at peersupportspace.org</p><p>Learn more about Basically Wonderful at basicallywonderful.online</p><p>If you are unable to purchase the book we’re reading, please contact Bell Giannosa to discuss scholarship opportunities. Limited scholarships are available and are first-come, however, we set money aside for this and really want money to not be a barrier. Please let Bell know if you could use help purchasing a book.

This group will stay closed to its identity-specific patrons only. We will be posting our book recommendations, and encourage you to read them on your own if you’re looking for books with more trans representation.</p><p>For questions, accessibility needs, or book scholarships please contact Bell Giannosa at bell@basicallywonderful.online</p><p>Schedule:</p><p>October 18th: Discussion of Mooncakes by Wendy Xu and Suzanne Walker (entire graphic novel)</p><p>November 15th: Discussion of FINNA by Nino Cipri (Chapters 1-5)</p><p>December 20th: Discussion of FINNA by Nino Cipri (Chapters 6-10)</p></div></div>
