Our rapidly changing understanding of gender identity and the dramatically increasing emergence of transgender and gender non-binary students and adults calls for community-wide discussions. Schools and organizations, particularly those whose core values and mission, vision and diversity statements reflect the importance of being emotionally healthy, non-discriminatory, and bullying-free communities, will benefit from encouraging student conversations, professional development and faculty training, program and curriculum review, and facilities planning in light of emerging transgender issues. How we nurture and encourage transgender and gender non-binary community members directly reflects how we treat each other and the overall health of a community.
