The Unintentional Closet: Queer Identity in Hetero-presumptive Situations

A session at Transcending Boundaries Conference 2012

Friday 26th October, 2012

1:00pm to 2:15pm (EST)

It's a straight world out there. What effect does it have on our identities as queer people when we are in situations where the people around us make assumptions about our sexuality orientation or gender identity. Does it matter how the world outside our doors perceives us, or can we go through life knowing who we are without that external validation? In this workshop we will commiserate, discuss and strategize ways to live, work and play in a our broader communities, while still staying true to ourselves and maintaining the crucial balance between being out and getting ourselves in trouble.
