WORKSHOP: BLACK,BOLD & BEAUTIFUL - Transcending hetero-normative idea's about relationships

MAIN SPEAKER : NW NETWORK SEATTLE


Research suggests that the LGBTQIA community is continually negotiating and comparing its expectations to hetero-normative standards, while also encountering expectations within the queer community and queer relationships. This workshop will address how ideas of hetero-normative relationships have shaped our views and keep us bound to a particular prospective. Panelists will share emergent themes useful in navigating hetero-normative stereotypes, pursuing legitimacy through language and/or ceremony, and how to construct our own relationship ideals and rituals.
