What is the difference between sex and gender? What does it mean to be a man or a woman? What if you identify as the opposite gender and what is intersexuality? Or what if you don’t really fit in one of these categories created by society? And does your sexual orientation change your perspective on gender?
During this info session, we will explore gender diversity using the analogy of the ‘genderbread cookie’, discussing the continuum of sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation and more. We will also talk through the use of labels and importance of gender inclusive language. Through relevant examples in the media, we want to offer a better understanding and acceptance of gender diversity.
Everyone is invited to participate in this info session: whether it is to support friends or family members, to explore your own identity or just to learn more about the gender diversity in our society.
During this info session, there is room for questions and sharing of experiences, but you can also choose to participate anonymous as we strive to create a safe place for everyone.
This info session is offered in English.
