I have been playing around with the idea of a TransRefuge YouTube channel for many months. After a staff team discussion this week, I decided to finally force myself to take the time to create a channel. You can find it here. You can find the first video uploaded to the channel here.

Feel free to suggest video topics that we can create content for.

Hmmm. It's not something that I would have thought of as a priority, but don't object if people want to spend time on it. I've just a minor suggestion about your introductory text's grammar; I'm not a fan of adjectives being used as nouns and you're missing a genuine noun: i.e. "TransRefuge is an organization dedicated to helping transgender and intersex people connect with resources." I'm not fussed about how it's done. e.g. You could also say "... helping people who are transgender and/or intersex connect ... ."
Cheers,
-Kenna

Oh, you're right, there is a typo in the text. I'll fix that.

@Kenna as for priorities, it is a matter of engaging people where they are. Written format discussion forums are great, but it is only one engagement pathway among many. The staff team has been discussing the disparity in activity between video meetings and forum posts. People seem to have a preference for video formats. So, we have decided to stick our toes into the video waters and see if it produces anything. As a no cost venture, the only resource we could lose is time.

Thanks Katie, my concern is time plus effort. I know that you and others commit way too much. I'm especially concerned for your family. A good intro though. Let's see what happens.
Hugs,

@Kenna its doesn't require much time or effort. A few minutes recording the video and a few minutes uploading.

Yay! Thank you for kicking this off @Katie, you sound great in the video! I'm super excited to work on this project😊 @Kenna , the hope is that we can start getting members of the group who may not necessarily be staff but have insight on a topic to contribute. We could have a thread where we discuss upcoming topics asking for input, maybe even post polls and questionnaires that people can submit answers to in the form of short videos that can be used as content. If people like it, we can eventually contact some guest speakers etc.
