The COM|PASSionate REVOLT team is so excited to be a part of UC Riverside's 2nd Annual Trans* Asterisk Conference!
Our team will be a part of two workshops:
This program seeks to de-mystify the process of therapy, requesting letters and accessing medical care for transition via the experiences of providers working in an affirming care model. Participants will learn about their rights and gain skills in advocating for themselves when seeking any medical care. Each provider will give an introduction explaining their role and current practices and then participants will be able to ask questions to support their individual journeys.
**Closed Space: This workshop space is for people who self-identity as trans or gender questioning.
How does the transmasculine individual sort out the stories we hear about what it means to be a man, the stories we tell ourselves about what it means to be a man and the men that we actually see ourselves to be? Society’s narratives about men and masculinity affect our self esteem, body image, the way we take care of ourselves, what we expect out of our relationships, how we let our families treat us, what careers we go into, the trust we put in medicine to alter our internal and external bodies and ultimately our core identity. Through interactive dialogue and exploratory activities, together we will gain insight about how expectations surrounding masculinity before, during and “after” transition affect the development of an authentic and fully realized self.
