This presentation will allow you to understand the intricacies of the difficulties of gender identity, gender expression, gender orientation, and everything under the TGNC umbrella.

Communication: Words Don’t Mean Things, People Do (1)

Communication is the root of all. Language and culture are the base for which a society forms. Essentially, humans assigned meaning to words and concepts; and once we get to the root of them, and understand the logistics for bigotry and incompetence, we can begin to work towards justice. This presentation has three variations.

LGBTQ+ Communication: This presentation focuses on communication and language within the LGBTQ+ community. This is ideal for introducing a crowd to the community, the various identities, some tips for communication, and basic competency.
