Abstract

We will discuss concepts of transphobia and cisgender privilege and provide examples to increase understanding of and empathy for transgender individuals. A deeper examination of cisgender privilege may be used to be a stronger ally and advocate for transgender people. Using video clips, handouts, exercises, and group discussion, we will unpack various aspects of transphobia and cisgender privilege and how to confront such instances in daily life.
