It isn’t often we get the same speaker back the following year but with G we made an exception! Following on from their fantastic session delivered by The Queer Box in 2022, we have G back for a more in-depth look at gender identity, gender expression, biological essentialism and the gender-critical movement.
This session is designed to give participants a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of gender, gender diversity and trans awareness.
The session will include:
• What we mean by gender identity, gender expression and the
• words ‘cis’ and ‘trans’
• The differences between sex assigned at birth and biological sex
• Understanding pronouns
• Use of appropriate language
• The transitioning experience
• Biological essentialism and the gender-critical movement
• Trans allyship
• Group discussion of potentially challenging scenarios
This content will be delivered using a combination of taught presentation, breakout workshop sessions and group discussion.
