My chat with Steven Petrow of the Washington Post about "transgender etiquette."


"This week GLAAD’s Tiq Milan joined me for the hour to talk about “transgender etiquette.” He responded to an overflowing mailbox, with questions about what pronoun and name to use for a trans person; what not to ask a trans person; why the sudden visibility of trans people in the news, and much more. In addition to his work withGLAAD, Tiq is a contributing author to the upcoming anthology Trans Bodies, Trans Selves, and is the Co-Chair for the LGBT taskforce of the National Association of Black Journalists. He started his transition 7 years ago. Below is an adaptation of the online chat. I asked the first several questions and then we took reader queries. To read the full transcript, please click here.
