Embracing An All-And Identity in an Either/Or World
Thursday, March 14th 2013
3:00 - 4:15 p.m. – Falcon’s Nest – University Center
While any sexual orientation or gender identity comes with its own challenges, there are particular issues faced by people who identify as bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, or who use other labels that defy an either/or interpretation of the world. Together we will examine these issues and devise strategies to create spaces that affirm complex, nonbinary identities.
