Bleached: Beyond White‐Washed Trans Narratives
Social/political discourses, literature, and even clinical considerations regarding trans and gender diverse communities are often White‐washed into mono‐narratives of the trans experience. Using theoretical and empirical research, this session will briefly examine the mono‐cultural trans narrative, discuss the social‐cultural‐historical‐political intersectionality of gender and racial identities, and consider implications for clinical practice with trans and gender diverse clients of color.
Presenter: Jayden Thai, M.Ed., Psychology Doctoral Intern, University Counseling Center, University of Utah
