Changing the Trans Narrative

  • Washburn Cultural Center (map)

Transgender topics are all over the news, but how do the stories that the media chooses to tell compare to the real issues facing transgender people today? How does the narrative they present especially target the lives of trans youth, and the support they receive?

“Changing the Trans Narrative” walks us through a little history, addresses some common misconceptions, and asks us to reevaluate how we frame our discussions around trans issues.

(Time will be provided for general questions about transgender topics and allyship as well.)
