We spoke to a dozen transgender and gender non-conforming Ohioans to learn about the issues that matter to them the most and asked them to share their stories with us. Watch our Transgender Spotlight video mini-series.
Transgender Spotlight: Shining a Light on the Stories of Transgender & Gender Non-conforming Ohioans
Trans Spotlight: Who We Are
This video answers several basic questions about “Who is transgender?,” “How is transgender defined?,” and “Why are pronouns important?”
Trans Spotlight: Legal Discrimination in Ohio
Ohio does not protect LGBT Ohioans from discrimination. That means LGBT Ohioans can be fired from their job, denied housing or simply refused service just because of who they are.
Trans Spotlight: Childhood Memories
People learn about their gender identity in different ways and at different times. Some transgender people relate back to their earliest memories. Others become aware that they are transgender much later in life.
Trans Spotlight: Support & Community
There are approximately 1.4 million transgender adults in the United States, but only 22% of Americans say they know someone who is transgender. Support is crucial for transgender Ohioans.
