Vincy managed to tie trans/non-binary concepts to their own story, while also integrating examples from other people who represent the diversity of the narratives within the LGBT+ community. This was a powerful way to have colleagues relate to it, and understand what they can do in their everyday life to be better allies to trans folks. We’re looking forward to the next session we can set up with Vincy!
