We are going to watch a film each meeting that deals with any and all of the following issues: gender, gender expression, gender identity, gender as a social construct, sex, sexuality, sexual orientation, sex positivity, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism. After the film is over, it is time for open discussion.
