In March 2020, CBRC partnered with Quadrangle NL and the AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador to deliver Pivot in St. John’s. This leadership program is focused on building capacity in 2SLGBTQIA+ communities to address systemic health inequities.
Pivot participants created “(Un)Covered: Sex at the Kitchen Table” - a series of webinars to talk about personal experience, knowledge, and the impact of 2SLGBTQIA+ exclusion from sexual health education programs and healthcare.
Episode 2 , Gender and Sexual Identities, was recorded on October 24, 2020.
In this episode, we talk about how we define identity? What does it mean to identify as something? And, why does the 2SLGBTQIA+ acronym mean so much to the communities within? What does it mean to have an identity that is neglected, oppressed, or erased? The panel included Maude Stephany- (they/them), Ashley Martin(she/her), Mahault Albarracin (she/her) and moderated by Pivot graduate Amnesty Cornelius with land acknowledgement by Jude Benoit (they/them).
