I'm not sure about transgender people, but there are several businesses with rainbow flags on their doors when I last visited.

I sure as hell hope they wont be mistreated. But the problem is people can be mean. Cynthia is the owner of a hair salon in town. She is transgender.
The lady that rented below her shop moved out so she wouldnt have to share the same building. She didnt approve. What a crock. I hope you are happy here.

Thank you! I would be working at the medical center. I'm a medical professional from further north in the state looking to finish my social transition. I am thinking of sending my kids to the episcopal school.

Are there any schools 7-12 th that are private but not super conservative? My kids don't need picked on for me being myself. I picked episcopal because they ordained a trans priest.

Curious,

I am a transgender woman living in Lewisburg and a business owner. The long and short of it. First, people tend to be if not accepting, at least tolerant most anywhere you go. Secondly, I personally have for the most part found Lewisburg a very progressive community. There are those who will have their issues, but that is anywhere and the discrimination can be because of age, skin color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or the thousand other things that the uneducated find to hold against you. I have made this community home and do not regret moving here.

The LGBT community in Lewisburg, maybe not as vibrant as in some cities, tends to be comprised of mostly professionals like yourself.
There is a documentary on youtube called "faces of fairness," it is a first person perspective about being lgbt and living in West Virginia. Included in the film are four LGBT people from Greenbrier County. Home is where you make it and I do hope that you find Lewisburg as welcoming as I have.

As far as the business that was below me, They did not move out because of me, but becasue their trade had fallen off drastically and were unable to pay the bills and an employee too. Their downszing had nothing to do with my gender identity. Please feel free to contact me at any time and welcome to Lewisburg. [email protected]
