The Future is Fluid: Understanding Gender & Sexuality from Different Generational Perspectives – New!
3 sessions, 6 hours
Language and ideas around diverse populations has changed a lot over the past 20 years. This can sometimes feel especially true around issues of gender and sexuality/sexual orientation. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Gender Creative Parenting, LGBT, LGBTQIA+, and the list goes on! This is even more complex when interacting with members of our families and communities who might be of a different generation than us or different identity than us. This course will talk about how understandings of gender and sexuality have shifted, how to interrupt the biases in ourselves and others, and how to connect across differences.
