But in the present moment, that isn’t a luxury people in the transgender community get to experience. One of the many issues Geena brings into conversation when she’s speaking at global events at the United Nations, the White House, or the World Economic Forum is how cisgender-focused many of the high-level discussions are.

“It’s super binary,” says Geena. “It’s very placed in cisgender over trans and non-binary people. I think most conversations should be as intersectional as it is, and all of those different identities should be on an equal playing field when it comes to speaking about those lived experiences, rather than prioritizing one more than the other.”
