This training will cover a host of topics, outlined below, essentially providing you the knowledge and self-inquiry tools to treat trans people with respect and make them feel safe(r) with you as a cisgender(?) identifying person. The most beautiful part about the last two Trainings was watching everyone share and learn with each other. I am a facilitator, not here to dump information on you, rather to facilitate conversations with folx.

We will cover:

-Trans Inclusive Language 

-Introduction to the living Trans experience (body dysphoria, surgeries, binding, et al)

-What does Trans mean? What is cis? 

-What does Queer mean? 

-What does trans inclusivity look like?

-How can we be gender neutral in our language?

-What is non-binary? And other gender non-conforming (GNC) identities? Discuss GNC identities. 

-How do I make it clear I’m a trans ally? Importance of pronouns

-Pronoun variation & usage.

-Gendered language in the world, including "feminine" and "masculine" energy.

Q&A this will be a big one -- people have many questions about the trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, two spirit identities and experiences.

-Marginalization of Trans, Queer, GNC folx and how to create inclusive, welcoming spaces.
