Some of the earliest memories my children have is their annual participation in the ”Rainbow Parade” as they called it. They began in strollers. Unitarians have a long history of supporting the ever-evolving alphabet of LGBTQ2s* persons. But last year participation went from the “right thing for me to do” to something more personal as my now son came out as Trans. Declan will share his transition perspective by video as well.
