Summary:

Having a 10-minute face-to-face conversation with a door-to-door canvasser about transgender rights, including reflecting on their own experiences being judged negatively for being different and how this might offer a window into the experiences of transgender people, reduced transphobia over 3 months and increased support for a nondiscrimination law even after exposure to counterarguments.
