Workshop - From Allyship to Advocacy: Supporting Transgender Communities

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to create a practice of collaborating to make UT safer and more welcoming for transgender and gender nonconforming people. You will practice setting an expectation of using gender inclusive language, respecting and honoring each person’s own gender identity and expression, noticing and interrupting how stereotypes about race and ability amplify transphobia, supporting the work of transgender and gender non-conforming advocates, sharing information about UT policies, and complying with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

Throughout, we will build your understanding of and practice strategies for interrupting transphobia, transmisogyny, and cisgenderism (both inside and outside of LGBTQIA+ communities) in order to follow the leadership of trans advocates to make UT a more welcoming place for trans people.
