“Still F***ing Here”: Trans Health After June 2020

August 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About: In June, new federal regulations interpreted the ban on sex discrimination to exclude discrimination based on gender identity. That same month, the Supreme Court ruled that federal employment antidiscrimination law protects LGBT employees.  Join Ames Simmons and Tonia Poteat as they discuss how these changes at the federal level will impact the day-to-day health and well-being of trans people living in the South.


  • Tonia Poteat is a queer Black cis woman, physician assistant, and academic researcher with the UNC Center for Health Equity Research in the Department of Social Medicine at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. She has provided medical care for people of trans experience for more than 20 years and conducts research in partnership with trans communities.
  • Ames Simmons is a queer white trans man serving as Equality NC’s Policy Director and as Senior Lecturing Fellow at Duke Law School. His work is rooted in community-based efforts prioritizing anti-violence, anti-oppression and transgender justice.
