From High School Friends to Successful Local Reno Band: Charity Kiss is Only Getting Started Band members found a book called “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius. In the book there was a sentence that said “the kiss of charity”. They changed the name to Charity Kiss.

While the band has been able to form a good following here in Reno, the band’s ultimate goal is to relocate to Los Angeles.

“We’ve established a lot here in Reno and we love it here,” Ziegler said. “But the scene is pretty small and we want to get to a place where we can reach more people. But home base will always be Reno, we love Reno here too. We just think there might something more we can hit in LA.”

Find out more about this up and coming band as part of our musical series of podcast interviews with Jaden Urban.

Sherrie Scaffidi, A Veteran Transgender Woman, Helping Others in Northern Nevada “I've known since I was nine that I was a little bit different than everybody else,” Sherrie Scaffidi says.

“But back then there was not a lot of information about people who were like I was. So I kept it hidden and I didn't do much about it. I told my late wife I think in the early 1990s. It didn't go over well at all, so I kept it hidden. She passed away in 2012, and that's when I decided that I was going to live my life the way I was supposed to be. So I started cross hormone therapy and in 2015 I came out to my three grown children. And I haven't looked back since then.”

Scaffidi, 72, is a transgender woman who came out to the world at the age of 65 in the year 2015. She’s well know in Reno at Our Center, and from her involvement in various groups including with PFLAG, an organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents, families, and allies and with TAG, the Transgender Allies Group.

Here she tells her story with reporter Kingkini Sengupta.
