TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO IDENTIFY AS TRANSGENDER OR GENDER NON-CONFORMING (TGNC)?
This course was amazingly informative. I have learned many new thoughts and ideologies. This new understanding will help me to help my students feel a sense of belonging, inclusion and understanding.
An amazing course rich with narratives and lots of readings/ videos/ resources. This has been a great learning experience for me. Thank you to everyone who was a part of teaching this course :)
The videos feel a bit cut-off a lot of the times, but if you ignore this then it's super informative and educating and well structured.
I found this course very helpful as I seek to learn the diversity and complexity of the trans community.
