Why Should I Care About Trans* Awareness Week?

One of the most important ideas that inspires Beyond Binaries is the notion that trans* experience/perspectives are not ancillary to our education but actually central. By dedicating a week to trans* experiences we are taking what is normally thought of as a ‘minority’ subject position and universalizing it. We are attempting to show you that we all – regardless of our gender identity – have so much to learn from trans* experience.
