Gender Talk at UTSC: Gender Identity & Expression
Monday, October 28, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
– How do we use fashion as a way to manifest our gender?
– What is the purpose of labels, and how important are they in defining identity?
In this session of Gender Talk at UTSC, we will be exploring the relationship between our gender identity and expression, as well as how these concepts influence the way we view our past and present selves. We will also discuss the role that fashion and clothing plays in the way we express ourselves and our gender.
LOCATION: University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, SL 232 (UTSC Student Centre)
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, or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions.
This is an open drop-in conversation café for anyone interested in attending. We encourage everyone to show up at 1:30 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 3:00 pm, but students are encouraged to remain in the lounge to hang out, chat informally and enjoy the remaining snacks.
