POSTPONED TO APRIL 20: ‘Questioning?’ Talk for Parents on Kids Unsure of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$0.00
UPDATE: THE DEPOT HAS ANNOUNCED THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO APRIL 20 (because of weather delaying the installation of a new roof).
Join other parents for an informal conversation about this common question for many parents, and frankly, a question ALL parents should be asking themselves, because this situation could always happen!
During this talk, we will discuss what it means to be “questioning” one’s sexual orientation or gender identity, and if my child is experiencing this, or their friends, and how to support them.
Questions may arise such as: What do these labels mean? Is this normal? Does this mean they are gay? Does this mean they are transgender? What about their future? Did their friends have anything to do with this? What about sleepovers? What should I be doing? These are all among the questions that can be discussed during this evening’s community talk.
Bring your questions and an open mind!
