Creating a safe and inclusive environment is crucial not just in our homes and workplaces, but also in our schools.


In today’s episode, I had the privilege of speaking with Flint Huffman, a veteran transgender teacher and content creator. Flint is not only a figurehead in transgender advocacy but also an inspiring voice in education policy.


Flint shared his personal journey of transitioning in the public eye, both as an educator in front of hundreds of students and as an influential online presence. 


We spoke about the complexities of creating safe spaces in schools and inclusive education, the current challenges facing trans teachers and students, and the importance of advocacy and allyship in education.


Flint's insights on the current climate surrounding transgender issues in education are both enlightening and thought-provoking. 


Join us for this important conversation, where we learn, understand, and celebrate the courage it takes to foster inclusivity in our schools.



Stay empowered,
Jen
