Can I See Your ID? - Verbal Harassment and Updating ID During Transition
I have been fortunate to have experienced one bad incident regarding my ID, but many people struggle with this situation on a regular basis. For me, my ID caused me a lot of discomfort early in my transition. I wish I would have updated it sooner to ease my mind.
In the video I discuss the time that I was verbally harassed regarding my ID and my gender identity. I also go over the 4 IDs that I’ve had during transition and why/what I updated each time. I touch on what elements you can change on your ID (picture, legal name, and gender marker) and go over the process in the United States (specifically Wisconsin).
I end the video by talking about precautions to take during conversations and what to do if you find yourself in an escalating encounter.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to share my journey. Thank you for watching and all the support!
