The Changing Landscape of Identity & Sexuality: Understanding and Supporting Clients and Patients of All Gender Identities and Sexual Orientations

Lecture Diversity Lecture Series

Robyn Ochs

Exercise Physiologist & Clinical Applications Specialist

Writer, speaker and activist Robyn Ochs will discuss the experiences of those who do not fit neatly into the binary categories of gay|straight&/or male|female. Like snowflakes, no two people are exactly alike, and our self-identities do not always correspond with how we are "read" by others. So how do people assign labels to their complicated and unique experiences? What does the "landscape of identity" look like today? What cultural changes are underway? How can healthcare providers support clients and patients of all gender identities and sexual orientations?
