Trans Awareness Week

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | November 18, 2022

This week is Trans Awareness Week. As the Human Rights Campaign says, "While most of the discussion of trans folks online can often be centered on negativity, Trans Awareness Week gives us the opportunity to uplift positive stories of trans people across the country." 

In a similar spirit, we share this book in our collection, The Trans self-care workbook: a coloring book and journal for trans and non-binary people. It was created by local artist Theo Nicole Lorenz and published in 2021.
