  1. Hi Angela,

    Would love to hear the tips you received around being more trans inclusive!

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hello and thanks asking! Here are some of the things we learned during the “How can the museum field be more inclusive of the transgender community” session:
      – Only 16% of Americans reported knowing or working with a transgender person
      – Label bathrooms as “all genders” or “gender inclusive” and avoid using figures representing gender
      – Deadnaming and misgendering is violence, when deliberate
      – When it comes to inclusion of transgender communities, the more explicit you can be, the better. Trans communities have traditionally been excluded, even from LGBTQ groups
      – Gender neutral language, like “hi friends” instead of “hi guys”
      Hope this helps!
