According to the 2019 National School Climate Survey, 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Compounded with issues of racism, transgender youth of color are more likely to subjected to racial discrimination than their cisgender peers. In this session, we will read a true, teen-written story about coming out as transgender and discuss how to create a healthy environment where trans and gender expansive students can thrive. We will review key terms like cisgender, transgender, gender queer, and nonbinary, as well the impact transphobia has on education and a student’s sense of belonging. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of trans and gender expansive students and actionable steps they can take to support them.
