Transgender Day honored in Houston

July 25, 2009 8:02:54 PM PDT
There was a landmark celebration for a center that's thought to be the first of its kind anywhere. The Transgender Center in Houston is celebrating its first anniversary. Houston City Councilmember Jolanda Jones came to a read a proclamation commending the center and included a message from Mayor Bill White proclaiming July 25, 2009 "Transgender Day" in Houston.

The center is a place for transgendered people to find support and help transitioning from the gender they were born with to the gender to which they identify. Founders say the transgendered often face discrimination and violence, so the center provides them with a safe place and information.
