Our meeting had been pushed back the day before, then again in the afternoon. The final update arrived 45 minutes before the scheduled powwow was set to begin: I’m assisting a Trans client who was just released from the hospital to get home!
The Williams Institute at UCLA estimates that roughly 700,000 Americans identify as transgender. Collectively over the course of two meetings per week, about two dozen of these individuals can be found at AIDS Project Worcester.

There were two in attendance, one the woman we were about to meet, the other her friend.
