On June 12, Dr. Michele Angello, a clinical sexologist and gender specialist will be releasing "On The Couch With Dr. Angello: A Guide to Raising & Supporting Transgender Youth." On The Couch with Dr. Angello is a Trans 101 course book that will help parents, families, and communities of Trans-identified children navigate through society. Dr. Angello has over 14 years' experience working with gender variant youth and their families and knows first-hand how important education is after a child or family member comes out as transgender. Recognizing that when "a single child comes out, their entire family will transition, along with their community," Dr. Angello has made the book an all-inclusive expose of the "journeys parents, teachers, pastors, children and medical professionals take to support gender variant youth." Dr. Angello will take the reader through "real life situations of transitioning in public, coming out in school/work, dealing with family dynamics and hormone therapy."
In conjunction with the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, Dr. Angello will be hosting a book launch event on June 12 at 6:30 PM in the William Way LGBT Center. Dr. Angello will do a book reading followed by a Question and Answer session.
