Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality
6:30-8 p.m.
BS Roberts Conference Room, North Hall, OSU-Tulsa 

Join LGBTQ educator, activist and writer Robyn Ochs to explore how we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences of sexuality. In this interactive program, we will explore the landscape of sexuality, conduct a thought-provoking anonymous survey of those present, and look together at the data. Where do we fall on various sexuality continua? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities? How asexual/sexual are we? How well do our friends/family members understand our sexuality? This program will expand your perspective and change the way you think about labels.
