Two workshops/community conversations entitled, “Hearts Open to Real Lives: The Science of Gender,” will be presented on Whidbey Island on Saturday, Sept. 14 and Sunday, Sept. 15.
These presentations will be held at 3 p.m. at the Langley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 3rd & Anthes, Langley, on Sept. 14, and 3 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 555 SE Regatta Dr., Oak Harbor on Sept. 15.
These presentations will be facilitated by the Skagit PFLAG Speakers Bureau featuring Linden Jordan, Randi Breuer and Kathy Reim.
This workshop will include basic diversity training and the growing understanding of gender identity. Diversity Training covers basic terminology, respect and how to be an ally.
“The science of gender explores how we have been taught gender is a product of culture. Science is building understanding that gender is more complex. This fascinating presentation expands self-knowledge and builds a basis to understand the world of transgender people,” a release from PLFAG states. “It has received outstanding evaluations by over a hundred local organizations,”
