492: Never forget our Transgender Brothers and Sisters – Trevor Boylston

“This transgender walked into the bar…” Cringe. Or, “You can tell he’s a man by the apple logged in his throat, no matter what dress he wears!” Cruel, cruel, cruel. These are the types of off-handed, transphobic remarks that can have a painful impact on the person in your office, in the cubicle right next to you that causes us to have to honor, those who are no longer with us on Transgender Day of Remembrance. To help us better understand how to be more accepting and supportive of our transgender brothers and sisters, Trevor Boylston, an expert in LGBTQ+ empowerment, and man who happens to be trans, joins us as we honor Transgender Remembrance Day, November 20th.
