Transgender Health Initiative at DTS
The Transgender Health Initiative (THI) is a school proposal for The Downtown School: A Lakeside School. The proposal suggests that the school's W120 - Health and Wellness intensive should encompass transgender health in the lessons taught. Take tucking as an example. It's a common practice for transgender women, though it can be harmful if done improperly. It is essential that our school addresses these topics so the student body is aware of transgender health and knowledgeable enough to engage with the lifestyle or help peers struggling as they transition.
By signing this petition, you'll make my proposal to the faculty a lot stronger and more likely to take effect. Please help me in this effort to make our sex education inclusive of transgender people. Thank you!
