NPHW 2019: Trans 101 and Beyond

Atticus Ranck and Sebastian Pelaez-Ranck are a married couple who both identify as transgender and have extensive experience presenting on issues related to the transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) community. Atticus has been working directly with the TGNC community as an advocate and educator for South Florida's and now Pennsylvania's transgender community. Sebastian serves as a Commissioner for the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs.

Included topics will be transgender health (including mental health), common myths and stereotypes about the transgender and gender nonconforming community, best practices for allies and professionals working with the transgender community, and the complexities and joys of living as a transgender couple, in which both partners identify as transgender.
