Transgender communities focus of Waikato Museum workshops
The first of a series of free workshops aimed at improving people’s understanding of the issues faced by trans people will be held at Waikato Museum this Thursday [12 November]
The workshops are running alongside the Assume Nothing exhibition which features photographs by Rebecca Swan and documentary films by Kirsty MacDonald, illustrating the diversity of gender identity.
Waikato Museum is working in partnership with the Human Rights Commission and local transgender and transsexual people to host the workshops.
The first, ‘Trans 101: An Introduction’ will be held this Thursday from 7.15pm-9pm. It is described as a fun session for people wanting to understand more about the issues faced by trans people, with an invited panel of guests reflecting the diversity of trans communities and including whakawahine, akava’ine and other trans women and men. The Human Rights Commission will discuss how the final report from its Transgender Inquiry can be used as a resource by family members, work colleagues and community groups to support trans people.
