Gender Diversity 101 (Virtual)
October 26, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
While societal awareness is increasing, we still have questions and are not always sure how to address the needs of trans, gender diverse and non-binary children. Terms and definitions seem confusing–genderqueer, pansexual, asexual, non-binary, and gender fluid. We all bring questions from our own perspectives: How do I talk with my child about themselves or people they encounter when I am not sure what I know or how I feel? How can a child be transgender or gender diverse? Aren’t they too young to know? Is it alright to talk with children about this and what is age-appropriate? Join gender education specialist Aidan Key in examining the topic of gender diversity in children and teens, the challenges faced by these youth and their families, exploring current research, and identifying the best approaches for creating inclusive, supportive environments for these children.
