Infographics & Supportive Resources

In order not to reinvent the wheel, and to give credit to activists and academics who have been doing this work for quite some time, we include resources from outside groups in this section. Please don’t hesitate to explore these resources.

National Center for Transgender Equality

“The National Center for Transgender Equality advocates to change policies and society to increase understanding and acceptance of transgender people. In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, NCTE works to replace disrespect, discrimination, and violence with empathy, opportunity, and justice.”

As a national organization, they offer a wide range of introductory, educational, and advocacy resources, as well as information about transgender rights, and guides for people navigating legal and social challenges. 

Transgender Student Educational Resources

“Trans Student Educational Resources is a youth-led organization dedicated to transforming the educational environment for trans and gender non-conforming students through advocacy and empowerment. Founded in 2011, it is the only national organization led by trans youth.” 

You can find a wealth of resources on their website, including infographics and TSER policy recommendations.

Williams Institute Report on Transgender Students in Higher Education (2018)

“The report reviews previous research and presents new findings from interviews, surveys and focus groups conducted with transgender students. It provides recommendations for institutions of higher education regarding the creation of transgender-inclusive communities.”

Trans Journalists Association Style Guide

This resource was developed by trans journalists to help inform media representations of trans people.

“The Trans Journalists Association’s Style Guide is a tool reporters, editors and other media makers can use to begin to improve trans coverage. It gives insight into appropriate language, common shortcomings, and steps journalists can take to make their coverage better. While this guide provides a strong foundation for covering trans communities with sensitivity and care, trans communities are incredibly diverse. The language some trans people use to describe themselves and their communities might be different from or even contradict parts of this guide. Reporting well on trans communities requires nuance and care, and this guide is only a starting point.”
