An estimated 700,000 people in the United States identify as transgender. This workshop will be geared specifically toward best practices for supporting and being an ally to transgender youth. Terminology related to gender identity and transgender topics will be defined, and common challenges faced by transgender youth- as well as ways to support transgender youth throughout these challenges will be presented. Recorded discussions with two transgender youth advocates, Sadie & Evie will be incorporated throughout the workshop.
