Join us for a panel discussion with members of the Trans and Gender Diverse Community (TGDC) and professionals. Panelists will bring a framework of perspectives to identify gatekeeping effects in the legal, behavioral health, and medical fields that sustain inequity in marginalized communities. During this discussion, we will: (1) Re-evaluate how cisgender and TGD professionals can marginalize the TGDC as gatekeepers, (2) Identify and recognize internalized & horizontal oppression and normalized microaggressions, (3) facilitate change to support both TGD colleagues and community members.
1-Participants will gain critical insider perspectives on the harmful and discriminatory practice of gatekeeping through the lenses of TGD professionals. 2-Participants will be able to implement changes in their practices that support equal access and opportunity for TGD colleagues and community members.
