YEP Youth Sector Workshop: ‘Understanding Diverse Sexualities and Genders: digital media, young people, and diversification (from LGBT to the new language of online identities)’

Date & Time
November 10, 2016 at 00:00

Foyer Oxford, 196 Oxford Street, Leederville

Starting in online spaces and social networking, young people have begun moving away from traditional gender and sexual identity descriptors like male/female and heterosexual or LGBT.  In the past few years, dozens of new identities have emerged for both gender identity (e.g., cis-gendered, demiboy, genderfluid, non-binary) and sexuality (pansexual, sapiosexual, homoflexible).  These identities are often very deeply-felt and very meaningful to many young people.

Facilitated by University of Western Australia’s Associate Professor Rob Cover, author of Digital Identities: Creating and Communicating the Self Online (2016), come and learn why some of the language of sexuality and gender has changed so drastically, how young people are thinking about their sexual selves, and how getting the language right is important for service provision in the youth sector.
