Transgender Basics Video
by Rosa Juel Nordentoft
Transgender Basics is a 20 minute educational film on the concepts of gender and transgender people.
Two providers from the Gender Identity Project discuss basic concepts of gender - sex, identity and gender roles - as three transgender community members share their personal experiences of being trans and genderqueer.
The film targets service providers and others working with the LGBT community, but it also provides a fascinating glimpse into gender and identity for the general public.
likes to make things simple, and gender isn't."
Carrie Davis, Transgender Community Organizer and Director of Adult Services at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center
"It was the constant fight of me saying 'there is nothing wrong with being this kind of
girl,' as opposed to, 'well, I'm not a girl.'"
Nicco Beretta, participant in Transgender Basics
