The Race and Gender Balancing Act

A gender transition can result in new experiences of privilege—both lost and gained—but that experience may be nowhere near the same for trans people of color as it is for white trans people. Has your relationship to race transitioned along with your gender? What was expected and what has taken you by surprise? How does acquiring male privilege balance with the losses that come with living as trans? Or, have you transitioned to female and discovered a far less friendly world? More friendly? Come share your experience and hear the stories of others as we explore the inextricable relationship between our gender and skin color.
