Genny was recently interviewed by Best Colleges on how trans high school students can know if a college is going to be supportive of them. See the video here.
Genny’s article, “Legal Fights Persist over Policies that Require Teachers to Refer to Trans Students by Their Chosen Pronouns,” was published in The Conversation.
For Pride Month, Genny was interviewed live by CBS News on how colleges support/fail to support LGBTQ+ students and what students can do if their institutions are unsupportive.
On behalf of Campus Pride, Genny wrote a group letter to the Department of Education to urge them to change their system for how colleges report data on the gender of their students to be inclusive of nonbinary students.
The letter was signed by dozens of national higher education and LGBTQIA+ organizations, including ACPA, NASPA, AAC&U, AASCU, ACUHO-I, the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals, CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers, GLSEN, PFLAG, the National Black Justice Coalition, and the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Genny is thrilled to announce that they will be working with the Common App to analyze the gender identity and pronouns, and the intersections with racial identity, for the more than a million students who filled out their application in the current college admissions cycle. The data will be the largest body of information on the gender identity of incoming college students.
Genny’s thoughts about the limits being placed on trans women to compete in college athletics were featured in a Feb. 25, 2022 article in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.
Genny was featured in a USA Today article about dating as a nonbinary person, “How Society’s Views on Gender Impact Relationships.”
Genny was one of the speakers invited to be part of a roundtable discussion sponsored by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on how to further inclusion in STEM programs. They spoke about their work to make colleges, and Engineering programs in particular, more welcoming to LGBTQ+ students.
Genny’s article on the need for colleges to increase support for trans students, with the Common Application now giving students the ability to indicate their gender identity, was published in The Conversation.
Genny Beemyn was selected by Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative as one of their spotlighted LGBTQ+ educators on Instagram during Pride Month. The post recognized Genny as “the leading expert on the experiences of trans students in the United States.”
