Allyship from a Transgender Perspective by Tammyrae Barr
Friday, October 20

12:15-1:15PM, 103 Tmzko
Often misunderstood and often denied, a transwoman will speak on the issue of gender identity, self-realization and the impacts of a judgmental society. Topics to be presented include the breadth of the transgender community, the variations within the community and the need to examine a social construct that labels male and female as boy or girl at birth.  Biological reproductive potential is merely an assessment of external bodily features; gender identity is rooted within the mind and while the cause is not fully known, the vast number of transgender people that exist in the world point to it as reality for many. We will also discuss what an ally is, along with the impact of micro aggressions (intended and unintended) on a trans-person’s place in society.
