Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I visit or work with an ASP Community Partner?

While we can make no guarantees with regard to the specific experience(s) you will have with any of our Community Partners, they have all been trained using ASP’s materials, and have all expressed their sincere desire to uphold our mission to create safe, welcoming spaces for people of all genders.

What do I do if I have feedback about an ASP Community Partner?

Whether the feedback is positive or constructive, we encourage you to share it directly with the management of the business or organization if you feel comfortable doing so. If this isn’t an option for you, please reach out to us at to let us know what’s going on. 

My business/organization is already inclusive – why should we be a part of ASP?

Even if you feel confident about your current policies and practices, there is always more to learn, and we hope you will take something away from our training! We would also love to have you listed as a Community Partner so we can help more TGNC community members and allies find you!
