Website’s Purpose: To provide resources and support to the TNBI community as well as intersectional identities; as a second objective, to educate current and potential allies.
Plan for the Future:
The club will have created an atmosphere on campus that makes all students (including transgender, non-binary and intersex) feel comfortable and safe in their own skin as well as the freedom to explore their gender identity and expression. In this atmosphere, all can share their pronouns and chosen name without the threat of chastisement that it doesn’t align with their legal name. In addition, the club will have satisfied the need for transgender, non-binary and intersex to have a support system. It will also address the intersectionality between institutional discrimination- on and off campus- such as ableism, classism, racism, heterosexism, xenophobia and many more.
To fulfill the objects of both a support system and reshaping of the current college atmosphere through activism, the club will split into 2 bodies. The first will be support. It will mainly include transgender, non-binary, intersex and gender non-conforming who can receive support from their peers in a casual social setting. The second part will be activism: this will be open to allies and all those in the queer community.
