actions: transgender awareness month

Standard

via Fenway Focus:

November is Transgender Awareness Month – a time to celebrate the vibrancy of the transgender and gender non-conforming community, educate the public on trans issues, and remember those who have been victimized by transphobic violence. All month long, Fenway Health will join local and national organizations in hosting events and educational opportunities around transgender awareness.

As outlined in Fenway Health’s Glossary of Gender and Transgender Termstransgender refers to a diverse group of people whose gender identity or expression di­ffers from societal expectations of how they should look, act, or identify based on the sex they were assigned at birth. This includes, but is not limited to, male-to-female (MTF) and female-to-male (FTM) trans people, non-binary identified trans people, and genderqueer individuals.
