Becoming a Trans Ally

Becoming a Trans Ally
* Seek information about transgender identities and organizing being done by transgender communities. There are many organizations with information and resources.
* Acknowledge, examine, question, challenge and change transphobia in yourself, friends, loved ones, people you work with and people who are involved in groups or organizations you are a part of.
* Don?t assume you know what pronoun a person uses. If you do not know, ask. Recognize and use the pronoun that each person feels comfortable with. If you make a mistake, just apologize. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes.
* Integrate transgender-friendly/conscious language into everyday conversations, and into your messages and materials if you are a part of a group or organization
