Sexuality and Gender Workshop
This one-day workshop is designed to give campus ministers and religious and civic leaders the vocabulary and tools they need to more confidently and productively engage our culture-wide conversation about sexuality and gender issues.
Time & Location

Stumberg Hall, 3206 Fairfax Walk, Austin, TX 78705, USA
About The Event
Is sexual orientation fixed at birth? What societal factors might affect the emergence of a non-heterosexual orientation? Are transgender people "born that way?" What about transgender therapies?
Over the course of one packed day, we will examine what reputable scientific studies have to say about homosexuality and transgender identity and will discuss how these scientific studies might come to bear on concrete situations religious leaders currently face.
Breakfast, lunch, and a 130-page color workbook will be provided. In order to pay for meals and workshop materials, we ask for a $75 donation from each participant. We do not want this cost to be prohibitive, however, and will gladly accept whatever amount you are able to give.
In order to facilitate deeper discussion, the workshop is limited to the first ten people who register.
