“Barnard led me to the spaces and people that supported me in my gender exploration. My Barnard friends gave me the courage necessary to be authentically myself. I wouldn’t be where I am without them. Barnard also grew my identity as an educator, which is perhaps the most important identity I have.
“Supporting the trans community at Barnard and beyond means giving them the same gifts that my Barnard family gave me – the space to be authentically themselves, unconditional love and support, and the opportunities to explore all of their identities safely.”—Dylan Kapit ’16 (@transteachertales)
