A Primer on Gender - LGBTQ Information Sessions
"Our door is always open…” We prominently, and proudly, display this welcome on our website and all communications. But how do we welcome people we don’t always understand?
June is national Pride month. Here at CHS, we will recognize Pride month with a 2 week Primer on Gender. In recent decades, there has been a lot of attention paid to transgender individuals in our country. This can be a confusing and sometimes difficult topic to understand. What does it mean to be transgender, nonbinary, or gender variant? How do we speak with and welcome these unique people in a Christian way? I have been an ally to the transgender community for almost 10 years. Join me for a 2 session Primer on Gender the last 2 weeks of June. I’ll explain the ABCs of gender, discuss polite ways of communicating with transgender individuals, how to be supportive, and finish up with what the Bible and the Christian church says about gender variance. Each session will include an open discussion period. Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Details: Thursday, June 23rd and 30th, 7:30 - 8:30 pm
Meetings will be hybrid - in person we’ll meet in the St. Julian room in the undercroft. Zoom registration is required for on-line attendees. The registration link is: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEpf-morT0vEtQTQUvCdY3UTZs65nwMGWj6
