Trans Affirming Communities

Friday, March 6, 2015 @ 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM in Burke Mountain Room

The American cultural norms of being heterosexual and cisgender have specific consequences for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community members.

Through understanding current terms and definitions, as well as youth perspectives and individual reflection, we’ll use this time to begin to learn what it really means to be an ally. Explore the knowledge, skills, and awareness you need to help make your campus community more safe and affirming.This intro-level workshop is for those who want to do their part to help create more equitable and affirming services for trans and gender questioning youth and adults. http://www.outrightvt.org/
