New to A11y?
Sarah L. Fossheim writes about excluding non-binary people by design with sign-up forms, saying “…broken features that open the door for discriminating [against] trans and non-binary people.” Unfortunately, Sarah also points out that likely either no trans or non-binary folks were involved or consulted on this, or their concerns just weren’t listened to. We have to create the time and space for good design to happen.
