Safe Space Standards
In order to be designated a Trans Safe Space, your FB page must moderate the discussion in your space and filter out any transphobic speech, or trans-critical political debate. If someone could benefit from education, you can challenge them with better information where it may be beneficial. We would still encourage you to take care to delete anything particularly transphobic, including misgendering and trans-critical politics and then make a new thread to respond to it, thus educating while removing potentially triggering statements. You could quote from the transphobic comment in your response and rephrase it to be less emotionally straining for transgender readers. Please also write a note in the Long Description of your page that transphobia is not tolerated within your space.
Please contact Trans Safe Spaces on Facebook or via email if you would like to have your page listed. We focus on listing FB pages that are not specifically about transgender advocacy or wholly dedicated to the trans* community. We will list pages that are LGBT(QIA+)-focused, but they must adhere to the Safe Space Standards set above.
Let Us Know
Please let us know if you see a page listed as a Trans Safe Space allowing transphobic speech. We will try to work a page and help educate if a page wants to be a safe space but may need help understanding what kind of offensive speech to moderate.
We can also help you moderate your page! Just let us know if you would like to have a Trans Safe Space representative help admin your page. We have a number of experienced FB page admins within our organization that can be given the Moderator admin role on Facebook to help specifically moderate discussions.
