Events with Sarah Dopp: Let’s talk about gender, labels, community, and the web!

“Labels Don’t Explain Me: How to talk about gender and sexuality with the ones who don’t understand”
Feb 15 @ Sarah Doyle Women’s Center lounge (26 Benevolent St.) @ 12pm

Gender and sexuality can be tricky topics with big messy-beautiful ranges of possibility. When the standard labels don’t describe who we are, how do we help the people around us understand? Heck, even when our labels ARE considered standard, how do we talk more deeply about them? How do we describe ourselves to friends and lovers? To classmates and coworkers? What about to our employers? Our parents?

In this discussion workshop with Sarah Dopp (creator of many amazing things, including Genderfork.com), we’ll discuss how to approach these subjects tactfully, with respect for our relationships and respect for ourselves.

Beauty in Ambiguity: Gender, Community and the Internet
Feb 16 @ MacMillan 115 (167 Thayer St.) @ 7pm

Curious about what it takes to rally online communities, especially when it comes to gender & sexuality? Want to learn more about harnessing the power of the internet and finding beauty in the spaces that defy and transform boundaries? Then don’t miss this talk with Sarah Dopp (sarahdopp.com)–tech professional & activist.

Sarah’s the founder of Genderfork.com, a supportive community for the expression of identities across the gender spectrum. She’s also addicted to rallying communities on the internet and trying to change the world. In this talk, she will speak about her adventures in online community organizing, how she taps the magic of the Internet, and what she’s learned about non-traditional gender along the way.

These events brought to you by SHEEC and the Brown Queer Alliance (via QCC).
