Talking with Parents and Caregivers about Gender and Sexuality Diversity in Children, Youth and Families – Part II

Date: Tuesday, April 13, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

This interactive workshop is presented as “Part II” to the introductory workshop hosted in Fall 2020. It will begin with a brief overview of language relating to gender and sexuality diversity and a summary of self-determination and affirmation in connection with gender expansive parenting and caring. It will then explore common questions asked by some parents and carers of young people as it relates to gender and sexuality diversity.

Facilitator: Rebecca Hooton (she/her) is a queer settler from Montreal. Working both onsite at The 519 and facilitating Inclusion training sessions gives her a broad understanding of the issues facing Queer and Trans communities, especially during this time. Her approach to community work is informed by her community organizing and training in theatrical collective creation. She is committed to ever-deepening understandings of intersectional feminism, anti-racist praxis, and healing justice.

Registration required. Current University of Toronto students, staff, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and their partners are welcome. If you have any access needs to ensure your full participation in this event, please contact the Family Care Office and we will try our best to work with you and make appropriate arrangements.
