A safe, inclusive environment: that’s the goal of T[rans] Party—an on-campus organization that is returning for the spring semester. According to an email TParty Co-president and thesis student Emily Via sent to the Student’s List, “TParty is a peer-led support group on campus for trans, nonbinary, genderqueer, gender non-conforming and questioning students to have a safe(r) space to talk about our experiences, the issues we face on campus and how transphobia affects us in our daily lives.”
Via talked about the importance of TParty at New College.
“It’s important because there aren’t many other trans-specific spaces around New College,” Via explained in a Facebook message. “It’s so important for us to be able to organize and talk to each other about transphobia at New, because transphobia still runs rampant here.”
