Transgender Day of Remembrance
November 20th, 2011
Today, as an ally, I am taking time to learn better methods of being a productive ally for the Trans* community.
Basic Rights (of Oregon) has created a graph/chart for Trans* allies which discuss common missteps often made (simply because we are all individuals who are learning to navigate language and respect) and how to notice, correct and educate yourself for the future. You can save/read the PDF for Common Missteps of Trans* Allies here.
If you’d like more information, check in with your local PFLAG, SOFFA, friendly neighborhood Trans* moderated Tumblr sites (Art of Transliness, FTMs of Color, The Self Made Man, Ryan Sallans and many others), local political outreach, or various other groups.
Remember, individually we are a voice but together we are a chorus.
Thank you for being an ally, an advocate and someone who raises their voice for us. We appreciate you.
