How do 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? Conducted by Robyn Ochs, this workshop will expand your perspective and change the way you think about labels.

Recent legal and political developments have expanded the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities, but they have also led to some backlash and misunderstanding. This workshop provides an opportunity for students, faculty and community members to engage with these complex and sometimes contentious issues and identify strategies for moving beyond the current political divides.

Robyn Ochs is an educator, speaker, grassroots activist, and renowned scholar on the subject of bisexuality and LGBTQ+ history and politics.
