Workshops & Presentations

These are the workshops and presentations that we have already developed.

Take a look from the ones below:

  • Gender & Gender Expression - (All ages, including under 12)
    • 1.5 hours (Includes a discussion)
    • Explore and discuss what gender means to each individual people, how people choose to express themselves, what we understand as feminine and masculine (and what that means!) and how gender is fluid
  • Identities 101 - (Under 12)
    • 1.5 hours (Includes a colouring/art activity)
    • What is an identity? How does our identity make us different than others? What kinds of identities can change? Which ones stay the same? Answer these questions and more, while also exploring what gender identity is, along with how the way the people show love can be apart of their identity.
  • Queer & Trans 101 - (Over 12)
    • 3 hours (Condensed version is 1 hour)
    • Examine the wide range of queer and trans identities, along with the different ways in which some people might identify. Learn about how sexuality, affectionality, biological sex, gender expression, gender identity and pronoun preference can be (or might possibly not be!) related to one another.
  • Working Towards Allyship - (Over 12)
    • 3 hours (Includes a shortened version of Queer & Trans 101)
    • After learning about queer & trans identity, participate in a dialogue about how to behave in ways that are supportive and accepting towards queer and trans people, particularly youth. Learn about what questions you should never ask, and how you should word the questions you should ask. Explore the variety of complex ways that homophobia, transphobia, cissexism and heterosexism manifest and interfere in queer & trans people's lives.

Our fee for workshops is a flat $200, with an addition of $50/hr after the scheduled hours.

Schools and other youth organizations receive a 50% discount.

All workshops include opportunities to ask questions!
