A Trans History: Time Marches Forward And So Do We

1. Reflection Questions

What about this video is new to you? 

How does it feel to learn about this history and the current lack of protections for Trans communities? 

2. Take Action

Know your rights. There have often been times in history where people with structural power try to deny, discourage or threaten others for showing up and demanding their rights. 

Have you been in a situation where you wondered what your rights were as a trans or gender-nonconforming student? As an immigrant? Or in an encounter with the police? Use the ACLU’s website to learn more about the rights that you have as a young trans or gender non-conforming person on and off-campus.

3. Healing + Resilience

Get connected. Meeting new people that share similar experiences, identities or histories to you is one way to build a network of support around you and your needs. Through the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lifeworks programs, you can get connected to other youth through weekly meetings, an adult mentor, or youth around the state at their annual Models of Pride Youth Conference. You can also get involved with the TransLatin@ Coalition founded by Bamby Salcedo.
