Explore a new virtual tutorial: Trans Youth Town Hall
The same fight for liberation continues today. Transgender and nonbinary youth are often left out of decisions and conversations that directly impact their lives.
In March, journalist and transgender activist, Raquel Willis moderated a Trans Youth Town Hall—on LOGOtv—to elevate the voices of transgender and nonbinary youth. Together, they discuss the issues that impact them like participation in sports, access to healthcare, and media representation. Additionally, LOGOtv partnered with GSA Network to create discussion guides for each segment of the Trans Youth Town Hall.
