I want to thank every single person who has ever shared the link to the Transgender Language Primer (http://www.TransLanguagePrimer.org/). We created the Primer with the intent that it be distributed for education and every single person who shares the link helps us in that mission. Trans people deserve the opportunity to connect with their community through language and *everyone* benefits when people educate themselves about how gender works-- it's complicated and no one has it figured out!

About Us
.

In 2016, recognizing the need for a resource that could be utilized by the community as well as our cohorts and the medical, mental health, and social professionals working with the community, Greyson began compiling the first version of the Transgender Language Primer.
.
This earlier version was hosted by Outshine NW and quickly became a popular resource. In 2017, the TLP expanded beyond this early version to become a dynamic Google Document with members of the community adding new entries and expanding definitions regularly with project leadership consistently seeking out ways to continue to be inclusive.
.
With the sponsorship of an anonymous patron, the TLP was able to hire a sensitivity editor to help curate and plant firm intersectional roots in the document. And now, with help from the Transgender Justice Funding Project, the TLP is expanding once again, both with an upcoming Spanish language translation and this website.
.
It is our hope that this phase in the development of the TLP will lead to even greater usefulness to the community, our cohorts, and the medical, social, and mental health professionals that work with us.
.
If you have any suggestions on how we can continue this work, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
