Connecting the “T” to GLBT - A Trans 101 with Nikk Selik

Our friends at Mancave (a trans-masculine discussion group that also meets at the Center on Halsted) are putting on a Trans 101 — one actually lead by a trans person! As it's a introduction, please invite friends, family, potential allies, anyone who'd benefit from an overview.

The “T” is not silent.

Identifying as Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual does not automatically make someone an Ally for those who are Transgender. Believe it or not, Transgender people can face ignorance or misunderstanding even from those who are Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual. As a community, our strength is our connection to each other. When there is a gap between the "GLB" and "T", our community is impacted as a whole...

The good news is that we can, together, bridge that gap. Knowledge is the most powerful tool we have to build connections.

Join Nikk Selik in this engaging workshop and discussion on Transgender identity.
