PHOENIX, AZ April 21, 2012: Today TransMentors International, Inc., (TMII) a non-profit organization which provides aid, support and assistance to Trans-identified individuals, announced the newest addition to its Board of Directors, “Just Evelyn”.

“Just Evelyn” became an author out of necessity in the early 2000s because there was no information on how to help her 15 year old son become a girl, and was one of the first parents to bring transgender youth to the public eye.

She has been an activist with PFLAG, and ran a support transgender/crossdresser group for ten years in San Diego, Ca. She was also an a electrologist for ten years helping many beginning transgender people start their journey. “Just Evelyn” has enjoyed public speaking in colleges and conferences educating on transgender issues and awareness.

“We are very excited to have “Just Evelyn” on our Board of Directors. She has given much to our community, and we feel confident she will continue to inspire the greater trans community through TransMentors International,” said TMII Executive Director Michael Brown.
