Transgender issues to be discussed

WELLSBURG - A film about a man who feels he is a woman in a man's body will be shown and discussed at the Lifetree Cafe at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Staffileno's on the River.

The film examines issues surrounding transgenderism such as family dynamics, workplace complications and spiritual implications.

"This issue - transgenderism - raises all sorts of questions for people," said Craig Cable, Lifetree spokesperson. "Increasingly, our schools, workplaces and faith communities are looking for answers. This Lifetree program provides some insight."
