Trans 101: The Basics

1. Reflection Questions

What is something that you learned here that you haven’t learned anywhere elsewhere? 

How does this video support or challenge something you know?

2. Take Action

Say Something. Discrimination and bias are often grounded in deep levels of misinformation and stereotypes. When you hear or see someone spread rumors, lies or hateful rhetoric about populations of people due to their real or perceived identities, what do you do? 

You can take a stand against hate in LA county by reporting incidents confidentially to 211 LA’s LA vs HATE campaign. Reports are confidential and are not associated with law enforcement agencies. Your community should be a safe place for people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds to thrive.

3. Healing + Resilience

Get support. No matter how many self-care practices you have, sometimes you just need to release your feelings and emotions with someone who can hold them professionally and confidentially.
