Naked gender: stripping gender down to the skin
13:00 - 14:30
Gender is a celebration. Gender is a violence. It is a weapon and a shield. Join us in a raw and vulnerable TO-based exploration of gender in all its complexity. Come ready to strip back the layers of gender and explore the myriad of troubling and beautiful ways we gender ourselves and the world. This is an anti-oppression workshop.
