Charles City Hosts New North Iowa Group for Transgender Support


Charles City, IA – February 13, 2017


A new organization dedicated to serving the needs of the transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming community has emerged in North Iowa. Transcend North Iowa, a group fully staffed and run by volunteers, will be hosting their third meeting this Saturday, from 5 to 7 PM, at the Charles City Public Library.


“We’re new, but we’ve already seen a tremendous amount of support from the community,” said Jessamy Orcutt, one of the organization’s founders. “This is a resource that many larger communities have, but that our area has been lacking. Our transgender and gender nonconforming community deserves to have an easily-accessible resource.”


More information about the group and the resources available can be found at www.transcendnorthiowa.com.
