    The words "sex" and "gender" are frequently used synonymously, but they actually refer to different, but related, characteristics. So, what is sex? What is gender? And what happens when they don't align? What does it mean to be "transgender"? How do all of these concepts relate to other identities such as sexual and affectional orientations? This workshop will take a deep look into the surprisingly complex world of sex and gender and will culminate in an in-depth discussion of the diversity of transgender identities.
