ONLINE: Beyond Pronouns: Tools for Allyship of Transgender and Gender Diverse Individuals
Note: This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom. To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class!
You remember to call someone by the pronoun and name they use.. good enough, right? So many people who want to ally themselves to transgender and gender diverse individuals are not aware of the wide array of ways they can help make life easier for them! Through a panel discussion, presentation, group discussions, and resource sharing, this course is a chance for people who want to build skills for allyship to learn to do so, without continuing seemingly positive things that may accidentally be causing harm. Professionals, friends, partners, and individuals of all sorts that are or want to be allies are encouraged to attend. Transgender and gender diverse individuals attending can learn how to support each other further, and build tools for helping others help them as well - including empowering their allies to do the work so that the trans people don't have to keep doing the heavy lifting. This is about more than pronouns. This is about culture-shifting at every level of society while also supporting people one on one. Let's all work together to make this a better world for everyone.
