Gender Identity & Expression - Q and A

Do I know what I want to say?

Particularly at the beginning of the coming out process, many people are still answering tough questions for themselves and are not ready to identify as transgender. Or they may know they are transgender without knowing exactly what that means to them.

That's okay. Maybe you just want to tell someone that you're starting to ask yourself these questions. Even if you don't yet have all the answers, your feelings are what matter. To get a better idea of what it is you want to communicate, try writing it down to help organize your thoughts.

Michigan Men - Being A Man

In this video, the men of Michigan's Greek Life community get a chance to describe what they feel is the Michigan Man.

As one member shares, “It means supporting your friends, making sure you are there for them whenever they need you.”  

These videos are part of our Hey Man, Do Something series.  Here, University of Michigan fraternity men speak out.
