Gwendolyn shares with Ian, a fellow member of the Napa LGBTQ+ group, how she didn’t fully realize she was transgender until she joined their senior group. Gwendolyn talks about how living an authentic life as a transgender woman has cost her relationships, a job, and her home, and caused her to live in crisis. Her journey has been tough. But there’s one thing that can always bring a smile to her face and make her day – simply being gendered correctly. Edit credit: Sean Collins
