Transgender center to open near Yankee Stadium
A new center for transgender Bronx residents is nearing completion, officials say.
The Bronx Trans Collective is set to open on Summit Avenue near Yankee Stadium next month.
"It's 2016, we don't need to hide anymore," says Sophia Vargas, who began transitioning in late 2007.
The center aims to provide resources from several different support organizations. They include medical help, counseling and legal assistance.
Supporters say the center will make a big impact on the Bronx transgender community.
