Ally is not a noun – it’s not a social media post, a bumper sticker or a flag – it’s an ACTION.
As a result of this new trans era of visibility, more and more people are standing up and supporting their trans and gender diverse friends and colleagues in the community, in business, their neighbourhoods and families.
How to be a Good Trans Ally is a curated panel discussion for corporate, community and festival environments. It features trans and gender diverse advocates (who represents the full spectrum of the community) and a moderator speaking about how you can be the best ally.
This discussion ranges from trans 101 to advocating for change, investigating ways to love and support our trans friends, family and colleagues through transition and beyond. It discusses how to provide an inclusive work place trans and gender diverse employees and how to ensure an inclusive guest experience.
Panelists are programmed who can best speak to the needs of each event.
How to be a Good Trans Ally is available now
‘An insightful and at times emotional event. It was a great example of what we can do to show our support for trans and gender diverse people in the Opera House community and beyond.’
Louise Herron AM CEO Sydney Opera House
‘Out for Australia partnered with FEM to produce two trans ally events at two large Australian corporates – Goldman Sachs and TAL insurance. FEM was an absolute pleasure to work with, they thought through each detail of the event, were able to find diverse and innovative speakers, help prepare them, and ensure the overall event was inclusive and enjoyable for everyone that attended. Events we hold with FEM are consistently our most highly rated events.’
