Event Time and Date

Monday, March 27 2017, 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Many people hold common misconceptions about people who identify as transgender, non-binary, or in some way that is unique with regard to sex, gender, and identity. Moreover, few people in the majority throughout our society realize that cisgender identity affords certain unearned privileges. This presentation provides an overview of gender diversity, and a welcome forum for exploring new and unfamiliar concepts. Those looking to strengthen their work as allies are strongly encouraged to attend.
