Transgender Activism Hits Second Life

January 5, 2007 ·

From PixelPulse Magazine:

When The World Professional Association for Transgender Health holds its biennial symposium from Sept. 5-8 in the U.S., there’s a chance participants will be discussing what sort of role a unique environment like Second Life could play in helping people deal with gender identity issues. More specifically, they could be chatting and learning about the Transgender Resource Center that SL resident Jani Myriam opened in-world just over a month ago. Read more here.

I recently visited the Transgender Resource Center in Second Life and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. You can read more about the Transgender Resource Center here.
