We have all been exposed to examples of disinformation. Today, such news and rhetoric spreads at an alarming rate and has gone largely unchecked. Recently, our LGBTQ2IA+ community and specifically transgender, non-binary, gender diverse folks and their families, friends, loved-ones, and allies are caught in the crosshairs of a resurgence of discrimination fueled by disinformation. We all know someone who may find these positions convincing, but what can you do to redirect the conversation? In this workshop, we'll align on the facts to better equip you with navigating these tough conversations. We'll talk about the realities of today's lived-experience for trans and gender diverse people, we'll define misinformation and disinformation, discuss examples of these positions and provide tools on how to confront and challenge these positions in a respectful and direct manner. Together, we can Challenge Queer Disinformation!
