CULTURE AND EVENTS    

TDOR Today marks Trans Day of Remembrance, and in schools & communities across the world people are remembering those who have been affected by anti-trans hate.  In honour of the many wonderful transgender people in our community, it’s important for all of us to learn how we can be allies to trans people. Here are some examples:

  • Introduce yourself with your name and pronouns. This can let trans people know that it’s safe to tell you their pronouns too.
  • Fight transphobia when you see it. Let people know that their behaviour or language could be harmful towards someone who’s trans.
  • Don’t assume someone’s gender identity, and use gender neutral language until they let you know what they use.
  • Trans people are part of every community, so during conversations and when decisions are being made, ask yourself who is and isn’t being represented, and why.
