Guidelines for Transgender Members

Girl Guides of Canada has released Guidelines for the Inclusion of Transgender members.  This document outlines how Girl Guides can be an inclusive organization and include members who are transgender or do not conform to traditional gender identities in our units.  It answers many questions you may have if you have a trans-girl in your unit or have received inquiries about a trans-girl joining your unit.

This document caused a bit of a stir in the press and social media.  I thought this article by BuzzFeed was the best of them.

  1. I love that GGC came out with this document. One small word usage note: they are transgender, not transgendered. You got it right in the title, but not in the body of the text. It’s a small difference but it’s always good to know the correct terminology. 🙂
