Jackson PFLAG wants to help you better understand the evolving understanding of gender.
Shifts in cultural consciousness have ushered in changes in how gender is understood, including concepts like nonbinary people and the use of the pronoun "they" to refer to a single individual.
For those who would like to learn more about societal movements around gender, will host a free community presentation, titled "Understanding Gender and Youth Today." From 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 27 in the Teton County Library auditorium, Stephanie Brill will present on the way people talk about gender and the wider societal changes.
Brill is the executive director of Gender Spectrum, a nonprofit that "helps to create gender sensitive and inclusive environments for all children and teens."
"There is a generational divide in our understandings of gender," Brill said in a press release. "To truly support the youth of today and to ensure their wellbeing, the adults in their lives need a more nuanced understanding of gender diversity."
In partnership with Jackson PFLAG, the Jackson Hole Community Counseling Center and Gender Spectrum are hosting the event. Contact Brill at 808-214-2992 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
