Becoming a Trans Ally and Going Beyond the Binary

People who are transgender (trans), including people who are nonbinary, report higher rates of discrimination at work than gay and lesbian individuals. This learning session applies the unique Straight for Equality approach to invite, educate, and engage allies for people who are trans and/or nonbinary. Participants will learn about key terminology related to gender identity and expression, expansive pronouns and how to use them, and skills they need to be allies to people who are trans. An advanced version of this session, that includes opportunities for participants to navigate real-world scenarios as allies, is available.
