This workshop offers a primer into terminology and information related to the transgender community. This is a foundational, entry-level course that employs interactivity and employs co-learning to learn about a stigmatized and socially marginalized population. The workshop is segmented into introduction/norms, terminology, gender, transitioning, and barriers faced by the community.
