Robyn Ochs: Beyond Binaries | Student Workshop
How do we assign labels to our complicated experiences of sexuality? In this interactive program, we will explore the landscape of sexuality. Where do we fall on various sexuality continua? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities? How asexual/sexual are we? How well do our friends/family members understand us? This program will expand your perspective and change the way you think about labels.
Wed | March 27th | 4:30 pm | The IC Dome
Robyn Ochs: Beyond Bisexuality | Campus Lecture
The Williams Institute estimates that approximately half of the adult LGB population identifies as bisexual, yet bi+ individuals remain invisible and marginalized, and many deny that we even exist.
In this interactive program, we will explore the experience of people who embrace non-binary sexualities, look at some of the challenges to recognizing and understanding the middle sexualities. No matter how you identify, come to this engaging and interactive program if you could use some tools for challenging ignorance, biphobia and bi erasure. Open to the Public
