JOIN US EVERY FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH FOR OUR NEW FREE PROGRAM IN THE DAVID LOUGHRIDGE LEARNING CENTER AT MEOW WOLF SANTA FE: LGBTQIA+ EDUCATION SERIES! EVERY MONTH WE WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT INSTRUCTOR PRESENTING ON A DIFFERENT TOPIC, WITH ENCOURAGED DISCUSSION. FOR OUR FIRST PROGRAM IN THE SERIES WE ARE HONORED TO WELCOME JESS CLARK, THE EDUCATION AND PREVENTION MANAGER AT SOLACE CRISIS TREATMENT CENTER.

 

Trans 101 Beyond Blue and Pink:

An introduction to terms, best practices, and the creative navigation of binary systems for Trans/Gender Nonconforming/Non-Binary communities.

More Trans/GNC/NB people are coming out than ever before. This progression in Trans visibility means
that families, peers, and community organizations are quickly needing guidance on how to best support
Trans/GNC/NB people in a system not built for their needs. Jess Clark, the Education and Prevention
Manager at Solace Crisis Treatment Center will lead an interactive discussion on basic terminology while
re-framing common myths, and exploring ways to move in solidarity with Transgender/Gender
Nonconforming/Non-Binary communities.

Topics Covered:
– Basic terminology – Connections to Sexual Violence Prevention
– Access needs in the context of service provision – Health Disparities
– Legal protections in Employment/ School/Healthcare – Trans Liberation throughout History
