Jessica Soukup talks about her idea of social transition and actions that need to be taken to be a better and stronger ally for transgender people, from the point of view of a 50-year-old transgender woman. She provides a brief summary of what’s the difference between sex and gender identity and how we use pronouns to establish our own identity; she remarks how a person’s ethnicity, skin color or gender may lead to more dangerous situations and how privileges and marginalization may affect us differently in society. Her talk is a good introduction to terminology, and a basic understanding of the transgender community.
