I don’t necessarily want to be treated like I’m different

It might be good for [university staff who respond to sexual assault cases] to understand like – hey, uh like my experiences [as a trans person] might be different, but I don’t necessarily want to be treated like I’m different. Y’know?

Recommendations

  • Engage in activities to develop cultural responsiveness as it pertains to sexual violence prevention and response. Apply culturally responsive practices in these areas.
