When: Wed., April 19, 3:30-5 p.m. 2017
College of the Redwoods will present a free workshop on diverse gender and sexual identities on April 19, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the Board Room, SS202B, in the Student Services Building on the Eureka Tompkins Hill Campus. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome. This workshop teaches the differences between sexuality, sex, and gender, and the different identities people can inhabit that may or may not fall into the socially constructed "binary" of male/female, gay/straight. It teaches the different pronouns people may use and how to ask about and respect those pronouns. The presenters at this workshop will be Kelsey Young and Jonathon Salinas. Kelsey Young is a senior studying psychology at Humboldt State University. She wants to use art therapy to create change in under-served communities. She works as the Publicity and Outreach Director at the Eric Rofes Center on campus, which is dedicated to providing resources and events to LGBTQ+ students. Jonathon Salinas is a junior at HSU studying Spanish and French. After graduating, he plans on continuing his work in activism by providing sexual health resources for queer and immigrant communities. Through his work as the Events and Programs Director at the Eric Rofes Center, Jonathon works with his community to bring awareness to social issues and how to combat them.
