Sexual Orientation and Queer Theory

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 5:30PM-8:30PM

Presented by: Stephen Duclos

Kinsey is credited with first introducing us to the idea that sexual orientation is fluid and exists on a spectrum. Expressions of gender are equally as varied. It is for these reasons that expanding one’s understanding of the current language and development of both sexual orientation and gender identity is necessary. Breaking out of the black and white, binary ways of viewing the complex and often complicated ways in which one’s sexuality expresses itself to the individual and the world means breaking free of stereotypes and ignorance.
