TRANScending Love: Rings & Tingz is a community-led project that examined the experiences of African, Caribbean, and Black Transwomen in Canada when dating and in pursuit of long-term relationships. The project builds on TRANScending Love: T-Love, an arts-based workshop designed to address self acceptance and Intersectional stigma among Transgender Women of Color in Toronto. Unlike the TRANScending Love: T-Love which focused on Transwomen of Color in Toronto, TRANScending Love: Rings & Tingz engaged Black Transwomen across Canada to explore key motivators for Transwomen who are Single, Dating, or Married. Tatiana will be sharing findings from the project including insights about the research design, outreach strategy, and themes that emerged at the upcoming event. To learn more about the project, feel free to check out the podcast episode on the TRANScending Love: Rings & Tingz.
