Beyond Bathrooms: Trans Affirmative Practices for Schools, Camps and More

Course Description:

In recent years many of us have become more aware of the need for our organizations to become more sensitive and affirming of trans and gender non-conforming clients and students. Unfortunately, for many of us, we aren’t quite sure where to start.
Beyond Bathrooms is a day-long training, facilitated by Perry Cohen and Meg Bolger of The Venture Out Project. Beyond Bathrooms is an opportunity for folks to learn the knowledge, awareness, and skills they need to create gender affirming environments, practices, and protocols in their organizations and communities.
Workshop participants will explore everything from terminology, gendered language and pronouns, to identifying common pain-points for transgender individuals, creating inclusive intake-processes, introductions, and much more. Participants will walk away with not only a more complex understanding of transgender identity and issues but also concrete tools for making their organizations more trans-affirming. No prior experience or understanding of transgender issues/identity necessary, come learn with us!

In this full-day session you will:

  • Learn foundational concepts around gender identity including vocabulary and pronouns.
  • Become more aware of the taken for granted assumptions that can marginalize trans and gnc students and staff.
  • Work through common scenarios around issues of gender identity.
  • Have a chance to talk with Perry, Meg and other workshop participants about specific challenges and questions you have within your own organization.
  • Engage in dialogue and problem solving that provides an opportunity to share experiences with others in the field.
No prior experience necessary. Come learn with us!
