Session Title:

Understanding the fundamentals of trans and non binary identities to allow those students to thrive

Abstract/Brief Summary:

The session will give an explanation, or clarify participants’ understanding, of the fundamental nature of being transgender or non-binary, what the misconceptions are, and how not to be fooled by the current 'moral panic' about gender identity.
