 By Lexi Adsit, Guest Blogger

Presenting on Philadelphia Trans Health Conference

Oh, to be young and trans again! Oh, wait I am rather young and Trans! haha. In session 4 I met Morgan M. Page of T-GUAVA (Trans Girls United Against Violent Assault) who facilitated a really resource-rich trans youth workshop around dating, healthy relationships, and abuse.

I could share a lot of information but one of the key things we brainstormed together as a group of what healthy relationships are:

  • Consent
  • Trust
  • Communication
  • Externalize thought process
  • Adaptability/ Evolution of the relationship
Morgan also shared with us a reference of “The Revolution Starts at Home”  a powerful community zine edited by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarashina and some other very inspiring community organizers.
