WORKSHOP THREE
homo sweet homo: queer- and trans-positivity in collective houses.
Saturday, March 10 2012 
afternoon 2:30 - 5:30
What does it mean for a house to be queer- and/or trans-positive?
What might it look like to be an ally through a housemate's transition? What does "gender balance" in a house mean when gender is complicated? Explore these questions and more, and help to create a toolkit on gender and sexuality to take back to your house and community. 

Email us for location details (it will be provided when you register).  
NOTE: Location is fully accessible including washrooms.
Facilitator bios:
Esther McPhee is a writer, jammer, and pancake-flipper, who has been thinking about gender and sexuality since they first started their high school's gay/straight alliance back in the day. They live at The Red House and can most often be found dreaming of blackberries.
 
Ben Keane-O'Hara has given workshops on sexuality and gender to high school youth and university students since 2005. He likes reading poetry, taking pictures and baking cake, and lives with a gaggle of chickens, bees, cats and humans at The Grown-Up House.
