From Boston: A Look Into the Keshet Program From David Setton

I have been an advocate for the LGBT community for awhile, so I was very excited when I saw that Keshet would be coming to discuss the spectrum of sexuality with our group. I couldn't have been more happy when they focused on transgender issues. It is something that often gets neglected in the national spotlight.
We discussed a lot of the vocabulary that commonly gets thrown around within the LGBT community and did an exercise that looked into different gender roles that society assigns and what happens when we step outside of those norms. The speakers did a fantastic job answering the questions that came up from the audience.
All in all, the program was highly enlightening. The opportunity to talk to some of the people who are dealing with prejudices was a really valuable experience that I think we all took a lot from. David Setton, Scottsdale, AZ
