This is a special episode in recognition of International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) which happens every year on March 31. This day is for learning more about and celebrating the lives and achievements of transgender people.  Our theme for this episode is inclusion for transgender and gender diverse people and why it matters.  And what does meaningful inclusion really look like when it comes to things like community participation, health services, human rights and policy development, to name just a few. 

Our guest for this episode is Tara Laursen who is ermha365’s Chief Operations Officer. Tara is bringing her own living experience as a member of the transgender community to this conversation.
