Tips For Editing and Writing Trans News Stories

From: www.allabouttrans.org.uk

I view a fair number of trans themed news stories between Twitter, Facebook, curating stories for my TROVE on transgender issues, Tumblr and WordPress. I see a real need for the kind of information this infographic contains. I would add a bit about respecting non-binary gender identities. My current pet peeve is stories classifying non-binary gender identified people as simply “gender non-conforming.” It is misleading and doesn’t acknowledge that gender identity is based on our desire to be our authentic selves and is located in our brains not our clothing. Please feel free to share!
