Forum – Beyond the Binary: Understanding Trans and Gender Nonconforming Identities
Sun, June 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
There have been dramatic advances in LGBTQ+ equity over the past few decades, but not all LGBTQ+ people have experienced that progress to the same extent. Trans and gender nonconforming individuals still face discrimination and violence at alarmingly high rates, and a tremendous amount of confusion about trans and gender nonconforming people persists. Olive Daddi of Translatinx Network, the beneficiary of a St. Bart’s clothing drive, offers a basic introduction to gender identity and shares insight into the struggles faced by trans and gender nonconforming communities. Part of Pride Month at St. Bart’s.
