Gender Talk: Gender Identity & Expression

January 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In the first Gender Talk of the winter semester, we will be discussing the relationship between gender identity and expression and how they can align with or oppose each other. We will also talk about how identities are defined and labelled and whether or not these labels are necessary in understanding one’s identity.
– What roles does gender identity play in gender expression, and vice versa?
– How do you reconcile your past identities and your present self?
– What is the purpose of labels, and how important are they in defining identity?

We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, or who are questioning their gender identity to come meet each other and talk about topics that matter to us.


Gender Talk is a monthly conversation café for trans+ students at U of T. We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues that you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions!

We encourage everyone to show up at 12:00 pm, if you can. At that time, the facilitator will introduce themselves and encourage everyone to share their name. After that, the facilitator will guide us in a conversation, though the direction really depends on the people present. The conversation wraps up at 1:30 pm, but students are encouraged to remain in the lounge to hang out, chat informally and enjoy the snacks.
