What is gender? Is it something other than male and female? If so, how can that be? Are we comfortable with the possibility of that and if not, why not? What about those people who use “they/them” to describe themselves…what is that about? Where does sexual attraction come into play with gender? All these questions and more will be discussed and explored.
Jill Carroll, a scholar, a member of the LGBTQ community, and a parent to a transgender child, will tell her own story and address the definitions and differences between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual expression.
