Non-Binary Basics and Getting Comfortable with Pronouns

Non-Binary Basics and Getting Comfortable with Pronouns
Date: May 19th

Facilitated by Maybe Burke of the Transgender Training Institute

Conversations about inclusion these days increasingly include representation and empowerment of transgender individuals. However, conversations about non-binary individuals are far less common and the resulting ignorance contributes to a hostile world for our non-binary community members. Knowledge is critical in creating a world that is affirming. This training is meant to help parents and caregivers who are new to non-binary identities understand the basics to help get you started. It includes a brief overview of terminology, cultural context, and best practices to ensure non-binary people are being respected and valued.
