Misinformation About the Transgender Community Online

Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each month we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion.

We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, August 20. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Do the results of the Media Matters for America study outlined in this article surprise you? Why or why not?
  2. If you were going to recommend organizations, news sources, or individuals to follow on social media for trans-affirming content, what would they be?
  3. In your opinion, what responsibilities do LGBTQ+ folks and allies have to call out and/or report anti-trans content on social media? What responsibilities do they have to share trans-affirming content?
