Trans-Ally 201: A Workshop for the Community

Kayley Whalen, Digital Strategies & Social Media Manager at The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

Trans Ally 201 was an informative and interactive learning experience. It helped activists gain a deeper understanding of transgender issues and advocacy. They looked at how the trans community experiences oppression, including high rates of incarceration, harassment and hate crimes and high unemployment rates. Participants were challenged to gain a deeper understanding of gender and how it influences their lives as well as what it means to be a transgender ally.
