Writing Beyond The Gender Binary: How To Write Inclusively About Trans and Gender Non-Binary Communities [Webinar Recording] ($49)
“I tell my students, 'When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not...a grab-bag candy game.”
If I asked you to write a love letter to trans and gender non-binary communities right now, could you do it? Would you know how to begin? Over the past three years, our collective U.S. understanding of gender identity and gender expression has evolved quickly. But just because our collective understanding of gender is changing doesn’t mean we still don’t struggle individually to break free from thinking and writing about gender in a way that causes harm to trans and gender non-binary people.
We now know that gender is a spectrum, not a binary, but how do we incorporate that knowledge into our copy? Writing Beyond The Gender Binary: Love Letters To Trans and Gender Non-Binary Communities is a 75-minute online intensive designed to help you identify what to look out for when editing your copy for gender equity and gender inclusivity.
Identifying the nuances of transphobia in our writing.
Using self-reflection and extensive analysis to repair our understanding of gender identity and gender expression.
Correcting the most common faux pas of gendered language.
Apologizing to TGNC communities when we make mistakes.
Composing copy that is inclusive of varied gender identities and expressions.
