Children Who Are Transgender and the Law | Understanding Transgender Children and the Challenges They Face

Young humans who identify as transgender or nonbinary have become far more visible, which is reflective of greater parental and societal acceptance. Still, of the letters in the “LGBTQ+ alphabet” (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer), it’s the “Ts” (transgender and nonbinary humans), especially those who are younger, who more often face unique challenges relative to personal relationships, public interactions, and many other things that non-transgender persons (the technical phrase is “cisgender”) take for granted.

What does it mean to be a younger “trans” or nonbinary human? What can others— particularly legal professionals—do to make these young humans feel welcomed and accepted? What actions or words should one avoid? How does the daily buzz of marginalization ranging from bullies at school to states enacting anti-trans laws play into their daily lives?

Join national speaker, diversity consultant and author Ellen “Ellie” Krug as she shares what it means to be transgender and offers tips and advice on how to be inclusive toward younger people who identify as trans or nonbinary. Come with questions!
