Growing up Transgender - Eau Claire
There are hundreds of thousands of transgender people in the United States. According to the Oxford dictionary, the word transgender can be defined as a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex. There is no doubt that mass media has helped to bring awareness of people who are transgender, but there is much to learn about the challenges transgender people face in our communities. How can we best support and understand the needs of people who are transgender?
Experienced presenters help to define, explore and provide a safe space for any questions you have. In this jam-packed and interactive presentation, explore the following:
• The difference between sex and gender, from both a biological and cultural standpoint.
• The transgender legal landscape: current and future challenges.
• The experiences/challenges of transgender youth.
• The role of the Health and Human Services professional in caring/advocating for the transgender community.
Tue. May. 19 8:30am-4:30pm
