Additional Information

Transgender people today are more visible and represented throughout our communities than ever. As such, organizations and individuals are finding the need to increase their knowledge and understanding of issues that affect their transgender colleagues, employees, friends, and family members.

Despite gains in visibility and acceptance, transgender people continue to face enormous challenges in everyday life—from poverty, unemployment, lack of access to health care and secure housing, to horrific violence and discrimination.

Our Transgender Cultural Fluency Training lays the foundation for participants to gain a better understanding of what it means to be transgender, clarify common misconceptions about transgender people, become familiar with the challenges transgender communities face, and learn ways to be a strong and engaged advocate for transgender people.

The training will cover:

  • Definitions of “the big four” concepts necessary to fully understand transness: sex, gender, expression, and orientation;
  • The prevalence of transness, historically and presently;
  • Models of gender that help conceptualize how nonbinary people fit in;
  • Erasure as the main problem nonbinary people encounter;
  • Common myths and misconceptions about trans people;
  • How and why people transition, and the processes that may be involved;
  • Issues faced by trans and nonbinary people;
  • How to be a good advocate for the trans community; and

Services provided by the Transgender Resource Center.
