"PREP Alameda had the pleasure of experiencing a training by the Bloom: Transgender Community Healing Project in December 2016. The training, offered by Zami, was potent, funny, effective, broad and yet detailed. Zami was highly competent in engaging staff’s questions, offering case examples, and clarifying the nuanced intersectional use of language in the queer and trans* community.
Zami even provided a brief historical context for the oppression of trans* people throughout the spread of colonization, and the responsibility of mental health services to disrupt discriminatory practices. Some staff had entered not knowing what to expect, but found themselves asking questions they hadn’t even thought to ask. Though Zami’s training was poignant and a fantastic introduction to trans* issues, they reminded us that it is only a starting point and true training comes from continuous education and critical engagement with the queer community. Thanks Bloom!"
"PREP Alameda was fortunate to host a training presented by Zami Hyemingway from the Bloom Transgender Community Healing Project. Zami's open and genuine manner quickly put staff at ease and allowed us to engage in a dialogue regarding how we might improve services for the LGBTQ2S and Transgender communities as well as helping us identify and examine personal and professional biases. Zamiis enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable, and has a way of making his audience feel that all questions are welcome. We look forward to more training from the Bloom Project!"
