What is Trans 101?

Trans 101 is the LGBTQIA Resource Center's introductory education program designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to support transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender questioning individuals at Georgia Tech.

Trainings last 2.5 hours and cover trans-inclusive language and practices, challenges facing trans people at Tech and nationally, and resources for supporting trans communities on campus. Trainings are open to students, faculty, and staff.


What will I learn in this training? 

 As a result of completing Trans 101 training, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate the terms transgender, cisgender, gender identity, gender expression, assigned sex, and transition
  • Define terminology related to transgender identities, including trans man, trans woman, non-binary, genderqueer, and agender
  • Identify and implement respectful trans-inclusive practices and behaviors pertinent to their role on campus
  • Describe their own gneder identity, and situate it within systems of privilege
  • Describe two barriers that transgender people face at Georgia Tech



When are trainings held? 

We host two trainings per semester. Our fall training dates in 2017 are:

Wednesday, 18 October - 9:30am-12pm
Tuesday, 14 November - 12:30-4:30pm



How can I register for Trans 101?


Spaces in trainings are very limited. Please only register for a training if you are committed to attending. If your plans change and you can no longer attend, please let us know as early as possible so that we can open your spot up to someone else. No-shows and late cancelations prevent someone else from taking your place.
