Gender Literacy

Understanding cultural “rules” about gender and the impact of not adhering to them.

Developing gender literacy is about the process of learning to identify and name oppressive practices within society as they take shape within the lives of transgender and gender diverse people. Gender literacy is also about understanding what the different aspect of one’s sexual identity are and how they uniquely come together in each person. In developing this, people begin to understand that their body parts do not have to define their gender identity and/or gender expression.
