This workshop will seek to have discussion around tackling the “differences” surrounding Trans and Non-binary identified persons. Alongside, the presentation will focus on understanding the damaging effects the Us vs. them mentality has on how we socialize with one another. Activities and workshop are reliant upon research conducted by Z Nicolazzo (2017), and Singh & Dickey, 2017). This workshop is fruitfully interactive.
