Ferndale – Over thirty local transpeople and supporters came out to Affirmations on Saturday, April 25, for the second annual Transgender Empowerment Day. They met to discuss topics like how to find and help educate a therapist, how to transition on the job, and MTF and FTM health care and insurance.

This is the second year that the Detroit area LGBT community held an official celebration for this nationally growing event, which began in California three years before, according to Arlene Kish, one of the event organizers.
