Transgender Awareness Week

Transgender Awareness Week

This week is Transgender Awareness Week. ⁠

And this is your reminder to recognise, celebrate and to speak up for the transgender people in our community.

It is also a week to reflect - have you educated yourself on trans issues? Do you read trans literature? Have you truly listened to the concerns of trans people? What are you doing to be more inclusive? ⁠

How can you support trans people in your community?⁠

  • Ask people pronouns, don't assume.⁠
  • Give you pronouns when introducing yourself (and add them to you IG bio).⁠
  • Respect the name they tell you they use. ⁠
  • Educate yourself.⁠
  • Call someone out when they are being transphobic. ⁠
