What does it mean to be part of a “generation?” It defines us by age, era, experience, and values. And the generational divide can feel all too real with one generation blaming another for the impending downfall of society. Yet many of our loved ones do not belong to the same generation as we do and we often have to navigate tricky terrain when it comes to mutual understanding. This month’s playlist highlights generational stories and intergenerational conversations as a way to examine this cultural phenomenon.
Trans Awareness Week (TAW) is November 13-19. During the week, people and organizations raise the visibility of transgender people and address issues members of the community face. TAW always precedes Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), which is on November 20. TDOR honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence that year. This playlist offers an opportunity to hear about the wide range of experiences transgender people have.
