Trans* Awareness Project

Several University Affiliated groups (including the University Libraries, the Office for Equity and Diversity, the GLBTA Programs Office, the Transgender Commission, and the QSCC) have collaborated to implement the Trans* Awareness Project. You may haven seen the posters and cards around campus, and maybe you have even already seen the TAP website.

The Trans* Awareness Project is a poster and digital media campaign that attempts to challenge stereotypes and cultivate an environment which celebrates and respects people of all genders. This campaign aims to break down barriers between communities and establish positive social change by showcasing empowering snapshots of local trans* communities and bringing attention to the challenges that many trans* people face in daily life.

The TransAwareness Project website has electronic versions of all the campaign's posters as well as biographies for each participant.  The website also has a ton of resources including worksheets, book recommendations, and a streamlined FAQ section; all of which are intended to help us think more critically about gender and it's impact on our lives.
