Launched New Gender Diversity Initiative in China



We are thrilled to announce the launching of TRANScending Borders in China, an international and multidisciplinary team made up of professionals who have been working passionately for years to eradicate discrimination and promote safe, inclusive and respectful environments for everyone.

As a society, we are still looking at reality with the lens of a binary model that thinks gender as two exclusive options: pink or blue, girl or boy. Parents, schools and communities are confronted with the need of a paradigm shift that would allow space for the wide range of colors that exist within human diversity.

TRANScending Borders provides professional development trainings, assessment and assistance to schools, companies, and different organizations, as well as counseling and support to parents, children and families.

Through a deeper reflection on the binary system we will be able to look at gender with different lens, so that parents, schools and communities can overcome their own needs and fears, and unconditionally support their loved ones, regardless of their gender identity or expression.

Vancouver school board approves new policy addressing transgender students

Grammar teachers may need to amend their lesson plans after the Vancouver school board approved Monday a policy change that welcomes a brand-new string of pronouns into Vancouver public schools: “xe, xem, and xyr.”

The pronouns are touted as alternatives to he/she, him/her, and his/hers, and come as last-minute amendments to the board’s new policy aimed at better accommodating transgender students in schools.
