After a national anti-LGBTQ hate group bullied a young transgender girl in Mount Horeb, Wisc., her community rallied behind her by hosting a community reading of “I Am Jazz” by transgender advocate Jazz Jennings.
Every year, in honor of the Mount Horeb community’s allyship, communities across the country join HRC’s Welcoming Schools program for its annual Jazz & Friends National Day of School and Community Readings.
Locally, the nonprofit group Genderbands will be hosting a reading of both ‘I am Jazz” and “Julian is a Mermaid” at the Orem Library.
The event will take place Thursday, February 27 at 5 p.m. at the Orem Library, 58 N. State Street, Orem.
This is an all-ages community event.
