Volume Title



In this session, Out In West Texas conveners will provide attendees with instruction on how to create transgender affirming practices for individuals from various professional backgrounds- including educational, journalistic, criminal justice, faith-based, or other community service backgrounds- to gain knowledge and competency in serving, interacting with, and/or reporting on transgender clients in currently underserved, small town or rural areas of Texas. Session participants will gain experience in understanding the obstacles of creating supportive networks for transgender clients as well as how factors such as race/ethnicity, ableness, socioeconomic status intersect, further impeding access for transgender clients and how to apply specific solutions in order to mitigate the impact of these factors.
