Join us for a conversation for youth in Anchorage and Mat-Su valley exploring how culture shapes our understandings of gender and sexuality. This conversation is designed in collaboration with photographer Jenny Irene Miller, the artist behind the "Continuous" exhibit of portraits of Indigenous LGBTQ2 people from around the state. Participants will explore the guiding question: how does culture shape our understanding of gender?

Community conversations are a space to bring folks together to connect on a topic and guiding question; using toolkits that are a part of the Kindling Conversation Program for the Alaska Humanities Forum. These spaces are welcome to anyone and participation is encouraged but whatever folks want to share or not, is completely up to them!

Thank you to the Pride Foundation for its generous sponsorship of these conversations! Thank you to co-hosts for this conversation event: Identity Inc. and The Queens Guard.

The location of this conversation will be shared with participants upon registration!
