Transgender Awareness Week

November 13, 2020

“Each year between November 13 – 19, people and organizations around the country participate in Transgender Awareness Week to help raise the visibility about transgender people and address issues members of the community face.” GLAAD

Transgender week is an opportunity to educate ourselves and make visible the “issues of prejudice, discrimination, and violence that affect the transgender community.” This is especially necessary in healthcare where transgender people have historically struggled for equality in accessing and receiving care. Take a moment to read the FAQ’s and Tips for Allies and remember that  “being an ally is a sustained and persistent pattern of action; not an idle or stable noun.”
