Gender Issues
Gender is a complicated topic! Both cisgender and transgender people struggle with the gendered expectations of culture. Man, woman, transman, transwoman, non-binary individual, almost everyone struggles with the box they are expected to fit in, and no one fits in perfectly. We are complex things, we humans, with many aspects to us. Here are some activity ideas, discussions, and other resources to help your GSA discuss gender.
