Whether you are new to working with these populations, an experienced provider, or part of our trans, non-binary, and/or gender expansive community, we aim to provide a training institute that leaves you feeling better equipped to work with these communities. We will be approaching this work through the lens of gender liberation and trans thriving.
This institute will go beyond “gender 101” sessions or work focused solely on the trauma experienced by our communities, while also acknowledging that trans, non-binary, and/or gender expansive clients and providers have long been ignored, erased, and harmed within the field of sexology. With the ongoing rise of anti-trans legislation flooding the US, it is more timely and crucial than ever to come together as a professional community to learn how to more competently and effectively support our trans, non-binary, and/or gender expansive clients in moving towards authenticity, embodiment, liberation, and pleasure.
We are proud to announce that all programming will be led and facilitated by trans, non-binary, and/or gender expansive providers. To cap things off, we will celebrate our day of learning with an interactive performance led by the hilariously renowned Drag King, Actor, and Emcee, Wang Newton!
