The Transgender Tipping Point: America’s next civil rights frontier” headlined the June 2014 cover of Time Magazine. Learn how community and staff came together in Vancouver to examine barriers to participation for trans* and gender variant citizens and developed recommendations to improve inclusion and access through programming, human resources, signage, facility design, and partnerships.
