Mattel's gender neutral dolls
Middle School Survival Club: Gender Identity & Orientation (Online)
May 5, 6:30pm
$25

No matter people’s gender identity, it’s important for them to learn about different experiences and perspectives in order to create a more accepting world. Sex ed materials in school often assume students are cisgender; many sex-ed curricula don’t even mention gender identity at all; and some that do discuss it only in a negative light. This not only prevents trans and gender creative students from learning the information and skills they need to stay healthy, but it also contributes to a climate of exclusion in schools and the world in general, where trans and non-binary folks can be targets of bullying and discrimination. This workshop is a start to combat that.

We’ll also review what all the letters of the rainbow stand for: LGBTQIA+! No matter people’s orientation, it’s important for them to learn about different experiences and perspectives in order to create a more accepting world. Sex ed materials in school often assume students are heterosexual; many sex-ed curricula don’t even mention sexual orientation at all; and some that do discuss it only in a negative light. This not only prevents LGB+ students from learning the information and skills they need to stay healthy, but it also contributes to a climate of exclusion in schools and the world in general, where LGB+ people can be targets of bullying and discrimination. This workshop is a start to combat that. Plus, we’ll also talk attraction, crushes and love!

This is a live, online, all-genders workshop. (The “all genders” class is open to EVERYONE. We sometimes offer a “girls” class and a “boys” class. The material is the same in all classes.)
