BOSTON, MA: Fenway Health is observing Transgender Awareness Week by highlighting the health disparities affecting the transgender community. At The Borum, their focus is on young people ages 12–29, so they wanted to highlight some of the challenges faced by trans* and gender nonconforming youth—and stress the need to do more to support and care for them.

Don’t separate your class by gender or sex, it can make trans* students very uncomfortable and it completely writes off individuals that do not identify in the gender binary. You can’t tell how someone identifies from how they look, and their experiences could differ wildly from your own.

When talking about transgender kids in schools, I feel it is important to remember that these kids are the gender that they identify as, and so we need to focus on how they identify, not what gender they were assigned at birth and what is underneath their clothing. Do we talk about what is underneath cisgender kids clothing? I’m hoping the answer is, “No.” This article explores Wren’s story.
