Program Description

Event Details

[Online] Confused about the growing list of genders? Get answers and insights from someone who knows. Heather McCammond-Watts (she/her), a local children's librarian and a self-proclaimed mama dragon to two transgender kiddos (now 20-something adults), explains the etiquette of pronouns, how Generation Z looks at the gender spectrum, how communities can support transgender athletes, and how to be an effective LGBTQIA+ ally. You'll learn about gender expansive youth and the distinctions between gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and sex assigned at birth, and find out about books and resources that illuminate the queer community's perspectives and experiences.

Closed-captioning available.
