Zine Callout— Are you a non-binary trans person? (Zine: stories and advice for service providers)


Hi everyone! I’m posting this call for zine submissions for a friend. Please reblog to spread the word!

"I’m a non-binary person and I’m going to be on a panel of non-binary people talking to LGBTQ+ service providers at an LGBTQ+ service provider’s conference in Ontario, Canada. Non-binary people are a very diverse group with all sorts of different needs and perspectives. I would very much like to collect stories and input from other non-binary people (whether trans-identified or not) to share with people at the conference because I have the privilege of being able to access this space safely and many non-binary people don’t.

Non-binary trans people all have different identities and experiences… many of us face some pretty intense hostility, discrimination and violence. And a lot of that comes from people who are supposed to be there to help us. Many non-binary people avoid all sorts of services even when we really need help, because we know how we’re likely to be treated… and it’s not okay.

As a non-binary person, what do you have to say to LGBTQ+ service providers about the kinds of stuff you’ve experienced from service providers and about how they do better?

Audience: LGBTQ+ service providers at an LGBTQ+ service-providers’ conference (“professional” people who claim to care about non-binary people, but who probably have no idea what that means).

LGBTQ+ services providers are medical and mental health professionals, educators and teachers, social workers and workers at community organisations serving all sorts of different LGBTQ+ populations.

Some possible guiding questions:

Do you have experiences interacting with service providers you’d like to share? (These are people who won’t know what interacting with service providers is like for you.)

• What happened and what effect did that have on you?

• How did they treat you?

• Have these experiences kept you from seeking services? If so, how?

• What would you have liked to happen?

• How did things like racism, ableism, misogyny and other forms of oppression matter?

Do you have any advice or information you’d like service providers to know about working with non-binary people? (This includes non-binary people who also face other kinds of oppression such as racism, ableism and misogyny.)

• What are some barriers you’ve faced because your gender identity/expression?

• What services have you not been able to access that you have liked to?

• Have you ever avoided seeking help from a service provider when you needed it because you were afraid of how they would treat you (or didn’t think you’d be able to deal with it)?

• What were some things service-providers can do to be more accessible to non-binary people and to better meet your needs as a non-binary person?

Short pieces of writing are ideal (e.g., 250 words)… when it comes to service providers actually reading them, but longer pieces are okay too if you have a lot to say, and so are images if that’s how you express yourself.

Please e-mail submissions or questions to: non.binary.zine@gmail.com

Deadline: May 31st, 2014 (so the zine can be ready in time for the conference)

Zine to be printed in black and white only.”
