Description:

The May Akron Branch monthly meeting on Monday 5/7, at 7 pm, at the Stow-Munroe Falls Library will feature a talk by Natalie Nauman, a transgender woman and retired electrical engineer, about her personal journey and about the transgender community.

Natalie began her transition in 2012 at age 60 while in a project manager position she had held for over 20 years as a male.  Her health was being affected by the lifelong feelings of gender dysphoria, and the confusion, isolation and loneliness it produces.  After years of this personal struggle, she decided “enough was enough” and began the process of changing genders.

She has now both researched and experienced the significant challenges and rewards that complete gender transition entails.  Natalie is passionate about transgender support and has become involved in numerous support groups and organizations in the Cleveland area.  Activism for her is living day-to-day as a responsible citizen and openly sharing her knowledge and story to both educate and humanize what being transgender is all about.

As always Natalie will answer questions after her talk.  Also, as usual, anyone wishing to continue the discussion after the meeting is welcome to join us up the street at the Stow Beef O’Brady’s over drinks or a late dinner.  

We hope to see you there!
