Flipping through these slides and I'm already so excited for Julien's talk at 1pm! #SelfConf
I'm speaking at #SelfConf in ~20 minutes at 1pm so come see me! Here are my slides, so at the end of my talk I can say "my slides are up on Twitter" and not be lying:
(whoops forgot to tag @firstname.lastname@example.org into this until now, sorry!)
@email@example.com If you are hosting an event for women in tech, you don't have an obligation to include other marginalized genders. Think critically about the mission for the group and who you're excluding with your language. Give a serious consideration to including trans men.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Other relevant resources of mine for cis folks reading this thread:
A thread about why you shouldn't request legal IDs at events:
How to ask about gender & sex on forms: http://fenslattery.com/portfolio/how-to-ask-about-gender-and-sex.html
Pronouns 101: http://fenslattery.com/portfolio/pronouns-101.html
@email@example.com And two good books to check out:
A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns
A Quick & Easy Guide to Queer & Trans Identities
A HUGE shout-out to @firstname.lastname@example.org for delivering a talk that was everything I needed to be reenergized and seen as a trans person right now. Thank you so so much.
