Presented by the trans women LGTBI activist, Candy Brightman.

In this talk, Candy will discuss trans* realities, visibility, the daily challenges faced by trans* women in society, the importance of inclusion and respect in all areas. She will also address a wide range of important topics to understand and support the trans* community.

We will explore the differences between biological sex, gender identity, and gender expression, and share personal experiences, including the inspiring story of Candy. We will address the challenges faced by the trans community, such as discrimination in work and education, as well as violence and hate crimes.

We will also talk about health and well-being, covering access to appropriate medical care, mental health, hormone therapies, and genital reconstruction surgeries. We will analyze rights and legislation, the process of changing name and gender, and anti-discrimination laws.

Representation in media and popular culture will be another key topic, as well as the importance of education on gender diversity in schools and workplaces. We will highlight the relevance of alliances and community support, and explore the intersectionality of trans identity with other identities.

Finally, we will look towards the future of the trans community, sharing perspectives and hopes for advancing rights and social acceptance.

This workshop is an opportunity to learn, share, and build a more inclusive and respectful future. We look forward to seeing you!

CSL venue. Reservation required.
