Gender Talk: Home & Family
Friday, January 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
– What emotions can come up when we talk to or about our families?
– How do we navigate family expectations, especially when they don’t match up with our realities?
– How do we hold space in ourselves for the way our relationship with our family has changed, and will change in the future?
Welcome back to a new semester of Gender Talk! In this session, we will be discussing our relationship with our families, and how our gender identities and expressions affect how we relate to our families. We will also talk about how we navigate the ways that relationship changes over time – what we expect from our families, and vice versa, what they expect from 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, 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 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 remaining snacks.
