A quick note from the Trans*Oregon crew:
We will be putting up quite a bit of trans* and queer-related material having to do with voting and the election over the next 9 weeks until the November election takes place.
To find the resources associated with the election, candidates, voting, etc. please follow this link.
If you come across any articles, information, statistics, etc. that you think would be pertinent, please PLEASE submit them here!
Thank you all, and happy election season!
Winter (We wanna know!)
Hello, followers! Anon asks:
I don’t know about you, but I get super depressed with this crappy winter weather we have in the Pac. Northwest. What do you guys do to combat the winter blues?
So what do YOU do to keep your spirits up during the cold, rainy months??
A call for trans*stories!
Hello, followers! My friend Aster is compiling a trans*awareness training for medical health professionals and NEEDS YOUR HELP! He says:
“Trans identified folks! I am in the process of collecting information and also people’s personal experiences to compile a training for health care practitioners on how to offer more trans-savvy and respectful care. I have a wealth of experience from my own life and also from hearing people’s stories in my communities for years, however, I want to include as many perspectives and voices as possible in bringing this project together. I am especially interested in including the experiences of trans people of color, trans people with differing abilities, trans people of size, First Nations trans people, working class/poor trans people, trans immigrants, any marginalized populations who often don’t have space for their voices to be heard by the establishment. Please contact me if you are available for a conversation regarding your experiences & what you would like to encounter with health care providers!”
Please contact him if you are interested in participating in this!
