Queer, Questioning, & Transgender Resilience
October 11th is National Coming Out Day, an idea based on feminist and queer theoretical ideas of making the personal political, ending the shame that comes from hiding, and making the world a safer place by providing queer visibility. In recent years there has been some healthy critique on the idea of encouraging folks to “out” themselves to family, friends, and workplaces due to a range of repercussions such as parental rejection, poverty, homelessness, and violence. This workshop will explore themes of coming out, safety, community, resilience, and multiple identities. Come join the conversation!
