The LGBTQ+ community is one that is often misunderstood and therefor mistreated. We are proud to be able to offer you a workshop that can begin change this narrative as well as offer ways for us all to work together to positively effect the lives of those who are “gender expansive”.
This workshop will provide individuals with an increased ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with transgender, non-binary, and inter -sex people. Attendees will also gain an awareness of their own cultural view on gender and perhaps re-evaluate perceptions, attitudes and beliefs towards difference in gender identity and expression.
Our presenter, Juli Grey-Owens has over a decade of experience as a community advocate and organizer specializing in the area of LGBTQ+ rights and equality.
