Poster 4: So your deadname is visible to the world...: Trans Identities and Name Authority Records

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Journalistic and Copy Editing best practices are shifting or have shifted to state that it is always incorrect to include a trans person's legal name unless you've spoken to the person in question and received permission. Why haven't cataloging best practices? This poster looks at the apparent point of conflict between discoverability and trans inclusion and hopes to destabilize the notion that these are mutually exclusive.
