“Telling My Story: The Journey to Find My True Authentic Self”

Will was born in 1968 in a time when sexual orientation was not talked about unless as a butt of a joke. Will never learned about gender identity until he was an adult working at UWL. He always felt like he was different, he did not feel congruent, and his inner vision of who he was never matched the person he saw in the mirror. He struggled with many things: an abusive childhood, alcoholism, anxiety/depression, coming out as a lesbian and later a trans man. Will will share with you his journey.
