Are you excited to deconstruct gender? Or are you confused by terms
A workshop by trans people for all people
like non-binary, cisgender, and agender? Perhaps you’re an
energized trans activist who’s ready to change the world!
Or do you want to be a better ally to your trans friends?
Gender binaries affect us all, not just trans and gender
nonconforming people. No matter who you are, you’ll want
to attend this thought-provoking, intersectional, non-judgmental
workshop facilitated by two down-to-earth transgender advocates.
With stories, humor, engaging exercises, and video clips, you’ll leave
with your questions answered and myths shattered, inspired and empowered
to make the world a friendlier place for our trans friends and our trans selves.
This workshop will center the experiences of trans and gender nonconforming people
of color. All are welcome: beginners and experts, transgender and not.
Facilitated by Maybe Burke and Sean Desiree.
Straight Answers to Gay QuestionsA program for general audiences, designed primarily to reduce homophobia and increase understanding of LGBTQ people and issues. Many heterosexual people have questions about gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender issues but never have a chance to get the answers. In this program, our pair of sex educators takes a friendly, funny, accessible approach, incorporating video clips, personal stories, engaging exercises, theory, a generous dose of humor, and plenty of time for anonymous Q&A to educate about this serious topic. They field questions ranging from "What makes people gay?" to "How do lesbians have sex?" to "Do bisexual people need to date two people at once?" to "Can transgender people have kids?" With the goal of increasing straight students' awareness, comfort, and sensitivity to LGBT issues, this program is a perfect event for Orientation Week, Pride Month, National Coming Out Day, or any time during the semester.
Coloring Outside the LinesA thought-provoking, interactive workshop about identity labels BEYOND gay-straight binary.
Many college students today are rejecting “traditional” sexual orientation identity labels like gay and straight, instead describing themselves with words like queer, pansexual, heteroflexible, “just sexual,” or choosing not to use a label at all. In this interactive, thought-provoking workshop, participants will explore the usefulness and limits of identity labels, the meanings of various labels, and how those labels work both personally and politically.
