Workshop with Robyn Ochs: Choosing to Label: What’s in a Name?
Bi, lesbian, gay, straight, queer, questioning, choose-not-to-label. How do you decide which label to use? What do labels do? What don’t they do? Is it possible to avoid labels? What is the difference between ascribed labels and chosen labels? How can we manage our identities in order to get the maximum benefit with the minimum cost? Let’s think creatively and proactively about identity. This is a participatory workshop, and all are welcome.

Conversation and Dessert: Loosening the Gender Girdle: How Gender Affects You
What makes a man a man? What makes a woman a woman? We will look at the ways in which we are limited by a binary understanding of gender, and explore how the politics of gender tie together the feminist, queer, and transgender movements. Come and please bring your gender with you.
