Don’t underestimate the power of feeling like a physical space—a restaurant, business, gym, doctor’s
office—was designed with you in mind. They wanted to make sure you felt included, welcomed, and like you belonged there. You were worth considering.
This is how I feel when I am in spaces with gender-neutral bathrooms, for instance, or when I am filling out a form that asks about my preferred gender pronouns. I automatically feel a little bit safer in the space. And you can guarantee that I’ll bring my business back.
Knowledgeable and skillful people are one important aspect of creating inclusive and dignifying spaces, and the actual physical space and artifacts of your business or organization also serve as a barometer. I can help you ensure that the inside of your organization, school, or small business is welcoming to trans and gender nonconforming individuals, whether as staff and/or consumers.
