Trans Rights Priorities for the Biden Administration

March 29, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


A new presidential administration that is supportive of trans rights provides opportunities to make further progress on addressing discrimination and violence against trans people. Join us for a panel discussion of how trans leaders are hoping to make gains during the Biden administration.

This panel is being held to mark the publication of The SAGE Encyclopedia of Trans Studies, edited by Abbie Goldberg and Genny Beemyn. All of the panelists are contributors to the work, and attendees will be given free access to their entries.

Free, but registration required. Registration link:

Sponsored by the UMass Stonewall Center and Clark University’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program.
