Call Me by My Name: Respecting Trans Elders

This workshop is a participatory presentation on the basics of understanding, respecting, and working as professionals with people in the very broad Transgender and Gender Non-Binary Senior community. People will leave with a keener understanding of how Transgender people are no different than anyone else living full authentic lives, and yet are often exposed to greater challenges in obtaining healthcare, safety, protections, economic status, and housing even in aging. An update of the current state of the community will review current state and local law, anti-discrimination protections for Transgender people, insurance, healthcare, and the compounded, intersectional disparities that Transgender People of Color live every day.
