|The Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) is pleased to present the next installment of the “Third Thursdays Webinar Series.”
This month, Dr. Talia Mae Bettcher, Associate Professor of Philosophy at California State University, Los Angeles, will be presenting a webinar titled “Transphobia Deconstructed.” After this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Define transphobia
• Recognize the Basic Denial of Authenticity (BDA) framework
• Identify ways in which transphobia can play out, even in situations in which no hostility is intended.
• Identify transgender resistance, including behaviors that might seem unhealthy.
Housed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the SYPP Center provides capacity building assistance (CBA) services to communities in the Western Region of the United States seeking to prevent HIV/AIDS among African American and Latino young gay men and/or African American and Latino transgender youth. The SYPP Center offers a framework for communities to create sustainable structural changes and build healthy community coalitions that respond to local needs.
