This event is happening today at 5:00pm. Come hang out with some incredible people who are willing to have difficult conversations surrounding suicide awareness and prevention; and what we all can do to help. Suicide affects all of us. YOU can make a difference in the lives of those you love. β™₯️ #suicidesucks #standingforstockton #QPR #onechurch #projectsemicolon #lifeisprecious #makeadifference #stayingsilentservesnoone

Language and terminology is ever evolving and changing. What was correct and inclusive last week may not be today. Let’s work to stay current with the words we use. But even more important - let’s honor the language/words/pronouns/identifying terms that our loved ones have asked us to use when speaking to them or about them. We show our love for them by honoring their wishes and the beautiful diversity of who they are. πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’—

It is not the job of our trans friends to educate cisgender people. This can be emotionally wearying and even triggering for them. As part of your allyship to the trans community, seek to educate yourself (from reliable and reputable sources) and not put the burden of education on those whose burdens we seek to ease. If you do have a trans friend who is willing to educate you, thank them. πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’—

The more comprehensive your understanding and education on these subjects is, the better your support and love will be to those who may need you. When we know better, we do better. πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’—

In a 2016 study in the journal Pediatrics, transgender children who socially transitioned (meaning they have changed their gender expression, choosing to go by a different name and pronouns and possibly also altering their clothing and hairstyle) and felt supported in their identities had normal levels of depression and only slightly elevated levels of anxiety compared to kids whose gender identity corresponded to their birth sex. #mamadragons #transawareness #transgenderkids #loveyourkids #lgbt #lgbtyouth
