Natural Strategies for Feminization and Masculinization of Voice

Please join Tranquility for our July monthly meeting.

This month we have speech pathologist Paula Sullivan joining us. She will be talking about voice production and vocal health. There will be some “hands on” interactions with attendees identifying pitch and demonstrations of vocal activities meant to feminize or masculinize your speech (whether or not you decide to transition medically). A discussion of self-help resources will follow.

And as per usual the family support group will be meeting adjunctly. Melina however, will be out of town so another parent will be leading.

Hope to see yall there!
