Webinar: Identifying and Dismantling Trans Misogyny - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

Webinar: Identifying and Dismantling Trans Misogyny

Rhetoric in the recent Australian election campaign directly targeted and attacked trans women, bringing the issue of trans misogyny into the national spotlight.

Co-hosted by LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and the Zoe Belle Gender Collective, our panel brings five trans women in leadership positions together to discuss trans misogyny as a driver of violence and how this harmful campaign has adversely impacted trans women, their families and communities.

This is an important opportunity for allies and the LGBTIQA+ service sector to listen to the voices of trans women and learn how to better identify and respond to trans misogyny. Our team will offer practical tips and guidance for both services and allies in including trans women in our work toward gender equality.

We only have limited spaces available in the webinar, so registration is essential!

If you do miss out on registration, or are unable to attend, sign up to be updated when the recording is available.
