Beyond the Binaries (Co-Presented with Ryan Hall)

Transgender and gender non-conforming students and people are increasingly visible on campus and in society.  At the same time, confusion continues to surround trans lives and how to best support them.  Transgender people face a number of unique challenges.  This session will serve to provide an introductory understanding of LGBT issues, gender identity and expression, and how to best support transgender people and students.  Although the presenters will share information, this session will be discussion-based and have some interactivity.  Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to attend.
