“I’m glad/I’m sad when people call me […]”
“Call me […]!”
“People call me […], but I don’t really get it”
We will talk about names and gender: things that we are concerned about, things that are painful for us, things that we are happy about… Relax and join us for a chat!
We'll enjoy tea and coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:
"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me,"
"I might be attracted to both men and women,"
"I have no interest in romance,"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man,"
"I have a man's body, but I want to be seen as a woman,"
"I don't want others to determine my gender for me,"
"I don't want to put a label on my sexual identity."
Besides these examples, if you have something else in mind and want to talk it over, please feel free to bring it up. With beverages and snacks prepared, we are waiting for you to come chat with us!
