“What’s In a Name?”  −  Questioning?  Non-Binary? Asexual? Two Spirt? Cisgender? Thanks to increasing visibility and acceptance, and the always-increasing speed of social media, every day we’re being introduced to more and more letters, words and phrases being introduced into the LGBTQ+ community.

“What’s In a Name?” is an awareness program presented by Persad Center designed to shed some light and navigate a path through this forest of language. The 45-minute program examines the specific meaning of letters in the LGBTQ+ “alphabet soup” with a discussion of how the evolution of the letters mirrors the history of the movement.

“What’s In a Name?” also looks at some of the most recent terms used in the trans and non-binary communities and how that language is helping us to move beyond the transphobic and outdated attitudes from the past.

In this webinar we will:

  1. Examine the specific meaning of letters in the LGBTQ+ community.
  2. Explore how the evolution of the letters mirrors the history of the movement.
  3. Review some of the most recent terms used in the trans and non-binary communities. and how that language is helping us to move beyond the transphobic and outdated attitudes from the past.

  1. gain a greater understanding of the meaning and use of letters and pronouns used by the LGBTQ+ community.
  2. develop an appreciation for this language is helping us to move beyond the transphobic and outdated attitudes from the past.
