Talk on questioning sexuality or gender
A talk on questioning sexuality or gender at the Depot, originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 1, from 7 to 8 p.m. has been postponed to Thursday, April 20 while The Depot gets a new and needed roof installed.
During this talk, parents will discuss what it means to be “questioning” one’s sexual orientation or gender identity, and if their child is experiencing this, or their friends, and how to support them. Questions may arise such as: What do these labels mean? Is this normal? Does this mean they are gay? Does this mean they are transgender? What about their future? Did their friends have anything to do with this? What about sleepovers? What should I be doing? These are all among the questions that can be discussed during this evening’s community talk.
Micaela Scully, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker at Silver Hill Hospital who grew up in Stamford.
