"Sharing Tricks and Tips"
Audry will facilitate discussion on "tricks and tips". This will be comprised of short demonstrations and insights into various challenges that we face:
- Applying false eyelashes
- Nails, press-on

- Beard cover
- How long you keep makeup
- Blemish cover
- Wig storage and management

If you have any insights to these or other challenges, come prepared to share them. We will have a fun, interactive meeting.

Birth Certificate Problems in Illinois?
Cole Thaler at Lambda Legal advises us that the ACLU, one of Lambda Legalís ally organizations, is taking a fresh look at the Illinois Department of Public Healthís problematic policy for change of sex designation on birth certificates. They are asking for people who have been harmed by the policy to contact them. If interested, please contact Jodie Clagg at the ACLU via Jclagg@aclu.org.
