Trans*Reel: Understanding Transgender Experiences and Learning How to Become a Better Trans Ally
About the talk: Trans*Reel is a presentation based around the experiences of transgender individuals. Instead of lecturing people on correct terminology (although some of that knowledge is important) I feel as though giving faces to the experiences of transgender folks is what creates greater allyship. So while the talk does include a short presentation about the terminology of becoming a good transgender ally, it also includes three short videos and a series of photos. The multimedia nature of the presentation is what makes it tangible, real, and informative.
