Better Understanding the Experiences of Queer and Trans Parents and Caregivers – A Brief Introduction

Date: Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you prior to the session start time.

This session will briefly describe what sexual and gender diversity means and the various ways these diversities are expressed in parents and caregivers that make up queer and trans families. This session will explore the beauty and necessity of chosen family and the ways that queer and trans parents and caregivers navigate family life and push back against cisnormative and heteronormative expectations of parenting and family. Folks attending this talk will gain insight into the barriers that queer and trans parents and caregivers face and become better equipped to speak to other human beings (younger and older) about 2SLGBTQIA families.
