Willy is working with Out2Enroll
and Center for American Progress
, providing curriculum development in multiple formats, as well as trainings for consumer assistance personnel nationwide on LGBT issues. These consumer assistance personnel are the navigators and counselors who enroll people for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. This important project will increase access to health insurance coverage for thousands of uninsured LGBT Americans.
Willy has three forthcoming publications, due in Spring 2014:
"Keyword: Cultural Competency," in the inaugural issue of Transgender Studies Quarterly
, edited by Susan Stryker and Paisley Currah (Duke University Press). Willy's article is a global perspective on the need for transgender cultural competency throughout society.
"Reveling in our Authenticity," in Trans Bodies, Trans Selves
(Oxford University Press). Willy's piece is about the intersection between mixed heritage experience and gender ambiguity.
LGBT stands for lesbian, gay,
bisexual, and transgender.
