Author Topic: Gender: Beyond the Binary - video presentation and Q&A session (1 hr 10 min)  (Read 1443 times)

I did a presentation on "What is Gender: Beyond the Binary" on August 20, 2017.  The presentation addresses the many facets of gender and its determination beyond the traditional male/female binary, including some basic broadly accepted definitions, and some of the recent science regarding medical discoveries on transgender persons.

I offer this for members to make use of in their educational efforts.

The video of the presentation and Q&A session is now released for public use.   I've attached the video links and a link to the handouts for the presentation.

And yes, I did put in a big plug for Susan's Place.   ;D

I am done crying over not being feminine.
I am done griping about being too masculine.
I will be me.
And that's a non-binary being.
I am... ME!


This... is MY story
The story of a girl trapped in a guy's body.
A boy trapped in a girl's body.
No.  Its the story of a... human being.
