Understanding LGBTQ & Transgender Issues with Leela Sinha
“Whatever someone’s gender experience is, it’s not a monolith.” Cis-gendered, transgendered, non-binary, genderqueer, agender, gender non-conforming... there’s a brave new world of expressing who people are. In this episode of Awakened Nation, Leela Sinha provides insight into an often misunderstood part of the LGBTQ movement- transgender people. You’ll learn how society has opened up to allow people to be themselves, why pronouns and names are so important and how to be supportive of the trans and non-binary people in your life.  About Leela Sinha: Leela Sinha (pronouns zee/zir/zim)  is an author, speaker, and executive coach, with a background in tech, bodywork, parish ministry, and sexuality education, among other things.  Zee believes that when people have to mute who they are it's bad for their health, their communities, and their bottom line. That could be gender, sexual orientation, race and culture, or something more amorphous like being 'too much'.  In 2016, zee wrote You're Not Too Much and shortly afterward founded The Intensives Institute at San Francisco, celebrating those big personalities and the companies that hire them.  Zee is most excited by the possibilities in tech and business when they overlap with diversity and inclusion.
