Abstract

When you hear someone talking about “T” do you know if they mean the beverage or something else? Are drag performers transgender? What about butch women? Most people know of someone who is transgender (either a celebrity or in real life), but do you know the vocabulary and identities? Here is your chance to find all the answers! The goal of this presentation is to educate folks on transgender identities, increase vocabulary knowledge to be a better ally, or maybe even put a name to your own gender identity (Surprise! Everyone has one.). No one is perfect so if you think you know you might be wrong!
