How Covid-19 Is Affecting The Transgender Community…

An extract from a talk I did for the University of Nottingham for Transgender Day of Visibility (31/3/20), detailing some of the extra complications that exist for the trans community around this pandemic.

Please note, I use certain language in this video that is ingrained but not ideal – It’s interesting how when we’re tired and stressed we use less skilful words! 1. Trans people being on a “journey” is an unhelpful cliche. 2. Most trans people who were assigned female at birth would prefer to refer to their upper body with the word “chest”. 3, Gender incongruence has superceded the term gender dysphoria, according to the World Health Organisation, and is generally preferred in-community, although not by everyone.
