Learn About Queer&Trans Identities

20


20 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

We can have a conversation about different queer identities, including sharing some of my personal stories about what it is like to be gender queer, transgender, polyamorous, bisexual, and what it's like to come out, face micro-aggressions and discrimination, change names, get surgeries, etc.

The conversation can be very specialized according to what it is you're most interested in learning/talking about. Depending on your prior knowledge, we can go over the difference between biological sex, gender identity, gender presentation, and sexual orientation. Or we can go over more specific/in-depth identities and experiences.

This would be a unique opportunity for you to ask ANY question you want, even if it is ignorant or incorrect. I will be as nonjudgmental as I possibly can, and will let you know if something you say/ask should not be said/asked to another transgender person.

Length of conversation is flexible!
