Foundations of Knowledge & Action: Trans 101
Ever feel like you missed out on the class where everyone learned about transgender and non-binary identities? Nervous about saying something wrong? It’s really common for people without 101 knowledge to feel hesitant to engage in trans-related conversations out of fear of saying something hurtful or ignorant. We are here to help you build that foundation of knowledge that will help you navigate future conversations with greater confidence and ease.
During our time together, we will review common terms, explore topics such as the differences between sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation, navigating pronouns, and explore examples of how anti-transgender prejudice intersects with other forms of oppression. We will model how to navigate these conversations using up-to-date and affirming language, and review three essential guidelines for supporting transgender and non-binary people in all spaces. Going beyond knowledge, this session provides strategies that you can implement immediately to be more affirming of your transgender and non-binary peers.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
- Accurately explain the difference between sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
- Name two examples of affirming and supportive language, and two examples of language that can be considered to be disrespectful, a microaggression, or non-affirming.
- Identify two potential strategies for recovering/apologizing if you make a mistake or misgender someone.
