Exploring the Gender-verse: A Community Conversation About Gender

April 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

We all have gender.  That is something all humans have in common. But how we express and define that gender is evolving. Join Robin P. McHaelen, MSW and members of the Staples Pride for a lively, respectful and engaging conversation. Together, we will explore emerging definitions and answer questions. Who knows what we might discover about ourselves and those we love? 

Robin P. McHaelen, MSW is the founder and former Executive Director of True Colors, Inc. She has co-authored two books, a book chapter and several articles on LGBTQ+ youth and is a nationally recognized thought leader. She is the recipient of numerous State and National awards. Robin is an adjunct professor at Central Connecticut State University, teaching intergroup communications and human sexuality.  She was recently appointed by Connecticut’s Governor Lamont to the newly formed Hate Crimes Commission.


This event is in-person at the library and will NOT be streamed.

Please register to join the conversation in the Trefz Forum.
