Facilitated by Teal Van Dyck and Alina Ortiz Salvatierra
As trans* narratives increasingly enter the mainstream culture, we still encounter a limited selection of stories and histories of trans* lives. In this workshop, we will celebrate and illuminate the nuance, beauty, and variety of trans lives, share stories of resilience and connection, and identify the values and supports that sustain us for the future. We will learn and practice tools and skills to use storytelling for radical personal and collective transformation, starting from the wisdom of our own lived experience. This workshop is a space intended for all kinds of trans* folks and others with gender non-conforming lived experience, and folks moving through questions about their gender identities are also encouraged to attend. This workshop was offered as part of the Trans Symposium Conference.
