The Language of Gender Identities and Sexual Orientation
As society progresses, our language evolves. New terms emerge and some words no longer have the same meaning. We live in a world where children, teens and adults identify as a range of genders and sexualities. We no longer can have the narrow view that “girls are girls and men are men”. Join us for a comprehensive introduction to the essential terminologies and definitions of gender identities and sexual orientation. What does LGBTQIA+ stand for? What is the difference between sex and gender? What are preferred pronouns? What does it mean to identify as queer? What is homophobia and gender discrimination? Learning these terms and definitions will pave the way for tolerance, respect and embracing the uniqueness that make us human.
