Five things to never ask a transgender person
The ZERO TRANSPHOBIA campaign asked five sisters and brothers of transgender experience to comment on 5 topics/questions that they usually get from cisgender people; questions that might be well intentioned in some cases, but end up being awkward, insensitive or intrusive. Their answers will educate you about their gender identity and will prevent you from making the question again.
Week Against Transphobia
Data about homophobia and transphobia in the U.S. is alarming: by the end of 2017, there were reported 1,218 hate crimes because of a person’s sexual orientation; 764 of these crimes were a result of anti-gay biases.
November 4-10 is an opportunity for community empowerment and mobilization to reach out families, colleagues, coworkers, clients, and anyone to discuss about the negative impact of transphobia and the need to build a safe space for LGBTQ people. Let’s take actions in getting to ZERO TRANSPHOBIA in our communities.
KICK-OFF OF ZERO TRANSPHOBIA
The Oasis Latino LGBTS Wellness Center is hosting a conference press to officially lunch the Zero Transphobia campaign. Community partners, elected officials, and civic leaders will join the event to bring attention to the impact of Homophobia within our communities.
