NON-BINARY 101: THE NEEDS OF NON-BINARY/GENDERQUEER/GENDER-NONCONFORMING COMMUNITIES
We get it: as a movement leader, it can be hard to keep up with all of the terms that young people are using to describe their gender identities. For folks who are used to the gender binary, non-binary
identities can often be confusing, but we’re here to help. In this workshop, we will teach participants
about the gender non-binary/genderqueer/gender non-conforming community from the ground up.
Participants will leave this session with concrete knowledge and practical tools to integrate the needs of non-binary people into their organization’s work.
Presenters: Jacob Tobia, Astraea Foundation; Renee Reopell, Children’s Hospital at Montefiore
