Trans 101

The Trans 101 workshop builds off of the LGBTQ Resource Center’s LGBTQ+ 101 and Safe Zone workshops to offer a training specifically focused on transgender issues. 

After completing this one hour workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the difference between sex, gender identity, gender expression and sexuality.
  • Correctly define “transgender” and “gender non-conforming.”
  • Identify words or phrases that are derogatory to transgender people and should be avoided.
  • Name at least two challenges many trans people experience before and after coming out.
  • Identify three emotions a trans person might experience during their coming out process.
