Title: Troubles with our Rainbow: Supporting Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Students in School

Description: Transgender (trans) and gender non-conforming students in K-12 schools have added challenges and stressors due to transphobia, bias, and discrimination. At this workshop, we will discuss some of the issues and barriers facing trans and gender non-conforming students, including mis gendering, bathroom discrimination, and gender-based bullying/harassment. We’ll also learn strategies and share GLSEN resources for being a better ally to trans and gender non-conforming students.
