InterSEX 101 with Claudia Astorino

Oct 25, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| $30.00

There’s a ton of variation in what human bodies look like, and they rarely come in two flavors. Perhaps you’ve met a fantastic person who happens to be intersex, and you’re smitten! Or maybe you’re interested in learning more about how the “I” fits into that whole LGBTQIAGNC acronym. You’ve got some questions: What does it mean to be intersex? What does intersex have to do with bodies, and what are intersex activists fighting for? How can you best have a healthy, consensual relationship with your intersex partner? Join intersex activist Claudia Astorino to talk intersex 101, consent, and how to be a good intersex ally. With Q&A to follow!
