Target First Saturdays - Book Club discussion

For our next meetup, I figured that we would focus on the oft-forgotten 'T' in LGBT. There's a event at Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum from transgender activist Janet Mock. speaking about her book Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More. 

On the day of the event, I'll send an email to people who RSVP'd with what I'm wearing. After the talk, we can pick where we'd like to potentially go for dinner and drinks (or just dinner, whatever people are interested in). While the site of the Brooklyn Museum doesn't explicitly mention it, there may be tickets required for this event, which are distributed at a set time (I guess those details will be released closer to the actual date).

Here's a little more about the speaker from her website.

Janet is a board member at the Arcus Foundation, a leading global organization advancing pressing social justice and conservation issues, and an advisor for the {young}ist, a young people-powered media site. She has also advised programming for trans youth at the Hetrick-Martin Institute in New York.
