Web Design that Doesn't Make Trans People Uncomfortable

Jessica Kelsall, 01/08/19

People who identify as transgender face a ton of challenges in day-to-day life, and sometimes that includes web forms and account management.

In this talk I explore problem areas for trans people like myself when providing personal details online, and managing existing accounts as transitioning begins - in particular: name and gender identity.

After explaining how a trans person may feel about providing these details online, I’ll critique examples of websites - good & bad, refer to guidance and provide learning resources, so that other developers may continue to design for the web in ways that are conscious of LGBT gender issues, leading to a more inclusive experience for everyone.
