Roz Keith, of Farmington, founded Stand with Trans shortly after learning there were so few resources available to her family once her youngest child transitioned.
Despite the attention celebrities like Caitlyn Jenner draws to the issue, there's still a lot of confusion and misperceptions about the transgender community. Keith is starting to combat that problem with the "Transgender: You Are Not Alone" event at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 14 at Temple Israel in West Bloomfield.
Officials with the Pediatric Gender Management Clinic at the University of Michigan will give presentations and take questions from the audience. Keith visited the Fox2 Studios Sunday morning to preview the event, which is free and open to the public.
