Ep 12 Part 3: Disrupting Your Trans Understanding: Trans 101 with TNET

Disruptors, we have come to the last episode in our three-part series with Stacy and Charlie. In the first two episodes of this series, we covered both Stacy’s and Charlie’s personal disruption stories, and in this last part, we have both lovely humans together! In this episode, both founders of TNET give us a crash course in the trans experience.

TNET (Transgender/Nonbinary Education & Trainings) is an education-focused agency owned, founded, and staffed by trans educators Stacy Fatemi (they/them) and Charlie Alexander (they/them). TNET offers trainings, workshops, and print materials designed to help all people understand and interact with trans and nonbinary people more compassionately and effectively.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • TNET + TNET’s origin story
  • A history of transness
  • Defining the Big 4: Sex, Gender, Gender Expression, and Sexual Orientation
  • Breaking down gender stereotypes and norms
  • Teaching children about gender
  • Defining transgender, cisgender, and nonbinary
  • Pronouns and how to use them
  • 3 things to do when you mess up someone’s pronouns
  • Techniques to practice using proper pronouns
  • What transitioning means
  • … And so much more!
