As part of our continuing mission to create safe and affirming spaces for all, Fenway Health is excited to roll out preferred pronoun buttons! These new buttons are available in four versions, each featuring a different set of gender pronouns: He/him/his, she/her/hers, they/them/their, and “ask me!”
The buttons make their debut during Transgender Awareness Month, a time when we all renew our commitment to supporting transgender and gender non-conforming people. One simple way to be an ally to this community is by honoring everyone’s preferred gender pronouns. Using someone’s preferred pronouns is an act that is both affirming of their identity and respectful of them as a human being. When you wear one of our buttons, you demonstrate that you understand the importance of pronouns. It’s also a great way to start conversations about gender variance and transgender identities with those around you!
We’d like extend a special thanks to the Howard Brown Community Health Center in Chicago for sharing this great idea with us. We hope you’ll join us in wearing these buttons proudly and showing your support of all the identities in our community!
