Self-Actualization & Allyship Workshop

About The Workshop

"More Than a Hashtag" is a 1- Month intensive workshop led by me starting this fall! I am a journalist, storyteller, and content creator.

I am a change agent, who thinks and writes about how to live our values everyday. I use the power of journalism and personal narrative, to highlight the humanity of transpeople across the full range of digital platforms including video, podcasts, writing, and social media in order to tell trans stories in order to save trans lives.

In this workshop, you will learn how to become a true ally, practice self-actualization, learn how Transness presents a model of the future where we are not limited, and finally, how to activate those learnings! Reserve your spot below.

About Me

I'm an Emmy and Peabody award-winning journalist, intersectional-news producer, and creator of TransLash, which was featured in The Guardian’s coverage of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. I'm also currently a Soros Equality Fellow and chaired the first-ever UN High Level Meeting on Gender Diversity.

What's Included in the Workshop

Weekly Teachings

I'll guide you through the learnings for that week, as well as take you through different exercises intended to not only educate, but grow your understanding of your self and preconceived notions.

Weekly Discussions

In conjunction with the different lessons, there will be weekly discussion posts pertaining to the concept for that week. The intention here is to allow us to connect as a group.

Live Zoom with Q&A

In our third week, I'll host a live Zoom. At the end, we'll leave room for any questions or additional topics you'd like us to discuss.

Tools & Community

When you leave this course, my hope is that you'll have the tools you need to be a true ally, a community to support you, and the skills to approach those around you who still need to be educated.
