WorkPride 2023: Workshop: How to Be a Trans Ally

We are all assigned a sex at birth based on attributes such as our chromosomes, hormones and external and internal anatomy, but not everyone's gender identity – their internal sense of their gender – aligns with the sex they were assigned. 

In the public domain, conversations about trans rights are increasingly polarised and often become heated and harmful. At WorkPride, we support respectful dialogue; at the same time, we are committed to accepting and including trans people for who they are.

Trans people face transphobia from both outside the LGBTQ+ community and within it. Therefore we encourage everyone who is cis, whether you are straight or LGBQ+, to be a trans ally.
