Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov. 20)

The Transgender Day of Remembrance falls at the end of Transgender Awareness Week this year. Here at Fit is A Feminist Issue we are marking the day by making space to remember those who lost their lives from transphobia.

This week Nicole and Cate both shared insights from transgender individuals about their experiences, especially within the fitness realm. Nicole shared a link on being an effective ally at the end of her interview with Jordon. This link here gives useful tips on how to create a welcoming environment that also focuses on safety (the website also has it available in French). Take a look at your workplace and your own personal space to see what steps you can take to ensure translives are affirmed, respected and recognized.
