Two workshops and community conversations entitled, “Hearts Open to Real Lives: The Science of Gender,” will be presented on Whidbey Island on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15.

The presentations will be at 3 p.m. at the Langley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at Third and Anthes in Langley on Sept. 14 and 3 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 555 SE Regatta Drive in Oak Harbor on Sept. 15.

The presentations will be facilitated by the Skagit PFLAG Speakers Bureau, featuring Linden Jordan, Randi Breuer and Kathy Reim.

This workshop will include basic diversity training and a discussion on the growing understanding of gender identity.

The diversity training covers basic terminology, respect and how to be an ally.

“The science of gender explores how we have been taught gender is a product of culture,” a release from PLFAG states. “Science is building understanding that gender is more complex. This fascinating presentation expands self-knowledge and builds a basis to understand the world of transgender people. It has received outstanding evaluations by over a hundred local organizations.”
