Beyond Binaries

Robyn Ochs "Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality"
Monday, September 19 at 7 pm in Hendrix Theater

In celebration of Bisexual Awareness Week, "Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality" explores the landscape of sexuality and how we "map" sexual orientation. No two people are alike. Given that, how do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? Robyn Ochs, educator, speaker, writer, and award-winning activist, shares her insights as an advocate for the rights of people of all orientations and genders to live safely, openly and with full access and opportunity.
