Promoting Understanding for Transgender People

(Florida)

Promote Understanding

To help foster an environment in which people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are valued and affirmed, Devereux Florida recently hosted workshops that provided insight about working with transgender people. The sessions were conducted by an organization called True Colors, which works to challenge all forms of oppression through education, advocacy and services for youth and their caregivers. During the interactive, day-long workshops, our staff heard from a panel of transgender youth and adults who shared their personal experiences. These informative workshops were designed to help participants differentiate between orientation and gender, and identify the issues that these youth face. As part of our efforts to continuously improve our services, this training helped answer many questions about working with transgender youth.
