S1:E14: Transgender Day of Visibility

Season #1

Hey, Cis; Hey, who?

Cis = latin preface for 'on the same side as.

Cisgender is someone whose gender identity aligns with their sex as assigned at birth.

Cisgender is someone who has the ability to make the world safer, brighter and more inclusive for trans people young and old. Cisgender is someone who needs to be an intentional part of the conversation -- so let's talk.


The International Transgender Day of Visibility takes place every year on March 31st and we are celebrating!

This is the 12th annual TDoV and it was founded by US-based transgender activist Rachel Crandall in 2009 as a way to have a special day designated to celebrate the transgender community.

Today we hear from people, young and old, from around the country on what TDoV means to them. Isaac shares what TDoV means to them, as trans and non-binary person living in Nova Scotia and Cynthia shares a little about why this day is significant to her as a cis, white woman and parent of a trans child.

We talk about ways you can take part in your own spaces and help raise awareness, learn and engage in intentional allyship.

Celebrate with us and tune-in to this extra special episode of Hey, Cis!

Hey, Cis! is a beyond binary conversation in being a better human.

 We are about current affairs and gender-based issues affecting trans and non-binary youth, students and adults within our Maritime community.

We take on difficult topics; (and this week it is a difficult topic), breaking us out of the binary, smashing stigma and fostering greater connection between our cisgender community and trans, gender creative and non-binary community.
