This event is free and open to anyone who is transgender or gender non-conforming, as well as members of their support system, such as parents, guardians or primary caregivers, partners or spouses and close friends.

A Day of GIFTS for Transgender Support

A Day of G.I.F.T.S. will be held in the Bardenheier Building at Middlesex Hospital, 28 Crescent Street in Middletown, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Featured at the event will be medical experts, businesses that offer products specifically for the LGBTQ+ community and community resources. There will be several guest speakers throughout the day, including Dr. Christine McGinn. Dr. McGinn is a well-known plastic surgeon, with formal training in transgender surgery, at the Papillon Gender Wellness Center in Pennsylvania.
