API Transgender Voices, Family and Faith—Book Launch with Marsha Aizumi
CLGS’ API Roundtable will be showcasing the book launch of “Two Spirits, One Heart: A Mother, Her Transgender Son, and Their Journey to Love and Acceptance." Author Marsha Aizumi and her son will be doing a book reading and giving a brief talk. This event will be held in partnership with API Family Pride. Location TBA.
"In this first of its kind, illuminating new book, mother, educator and LGBT activist Marsha Aizumi shares her story of parenting a young woman who came out as a lesbian, then transitioned to male. Two Spirits, One Heart: A Son's Journey and a Mother's Love chronicles her personal journey from being the mother of her dearly desired adopted baby girl Ashley, to offering unconditional love, acceptance and support amid her child's struggles to reconcile her gender identity and follow her path to become a man, Aiden. In the process, she also becomes a passionate advocate for the greater rights of transgender, bisexual, gay and lesbian citizens." - Amazon.com
