I recently came across this wonderful post on the Chorus America website. Practical and straightforward, it offers some excellent suggestions for creating a safe and welcoming environment for our transgender and gender questioning/non-binary singers.
It is not hard to incorporate many of these steps! Take a moment to examine how binary the choral world is, from the way we dress to the way we address our choirs. By being more gender-inclusive in all we do, we can help our singers feel more welcome in our ensembles. Please take a moment to read!
