Transgender Day of Remembrance
Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance.
This year transphobia has claimed the lives of at least 330 people, 32 in the United States. Let's honor today and every day by teaching our kids about gender diversity, compassion, and understanding of others. Together we can raise kinder humans and bright future leaders.
How can you ask someone’s pronouns? Hi, my name is Sara, and my pronouns are she/her. What are yours?
Look up these common genders: cisgender, transgender, nonbinary, intersex, and two-spirit.
What is the difference between sex and gender? Gender is the identity the person is living. This can change over time and isn’t always tied to ones born sex.
What does it mean to be transphobic? Transphobia is when you hate a person because they are transgender. It is also the belief that trans people do not deserve respect or rights.
How can we support our trans friends? You just did, by learning the above, great job! It’s important to know that being an ally is ongoing and we need to keep learning!

+Read Books: I am Jazz, Red a Crayon’s Story, They She He Easy as 123.
