Must have attended a Safe Zone Fundamental Workshop to attend an advanced workshop. Transgender people continue to be an invisible, often forgotten community. This session helps participants develop self-awareness and compassion and to think critically about their own assumptions and vulnerabilities as related to gender. Participants will learn about the gender binary, understand accurate terms, explore potential gender transition process, and consider common concerns and challenges in higher education. This session is recommended for any person wanting to learn how to become a better ally to this population. Register online at: uis.edu/lgbtq/programs/safezone
