Transgender “101” at the Jung Center

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Montrose Center, Legacy Community Health Services, and the Human Rights Campaign.

What does it mean to be transgender? In this program, we will unpack the differences between sexuality, gender identity, gender expression, and anatomical sex, featuring Colt Keo-Meier, PhD, and Lou Weaver.

Mr. Weaver and Dr. Keo-Meier, local experts in gender and sexuality who happen to be transgender men, will explore the nuances between each of these concepts and practical considerations for interacting with transgender people in a sensitive manner. We will discuss initial considerations for mental health practitioners who are open to working with transgender people and their families, though the program is not limited to mental health professionals—all are welcome.
