Trans*Matters: Navigating the Gender Binary for Transgender People and Those Who Love them, a Practical Approach

In this workshop, the facilitators, both professionals and people of trans experience, will provide a broad overview of the ways in which transgender experience intersects with various facets of life and institutions. We will explore diverse gender identity in the social environment (school, work and play) , healthcare, support networks and relationships of all kinds, intersections with the legal system, and transition planning for trans people and their loved ones. If you are a trans person in a family, considering your gender identity, or someone who has a loved one in transition, come to this workshop for a frank and practical discussion of all the considerations in what it means to live as a transgender person in NY State today.

- After this workshop participants will be able to identify two resources relevant to their experience  of gender identity and/or gender variant loved ones in their life. 

- Participants will be able to name three areas of life that are impacted by gender identity and/or gender transition.

- Participants will be able to identify one strategy to address a current struggle (ex. at work, healthcare, or relationship) they are experiencing around their gender or the gender identity of a loved one.
