Trans and Gender Non-conforming Inclusion in Libraries [video replay]
This session provided an overview of a diverse range of gender identities and experiences and best practices for working with transgender colleagues, students, and patrons. Through the sharing of examples, this session challenged participants to create trans affirming spaces while critically examining library policies, languages, and practices.
