On Thursday, March 17, Robyn Ochs, an educator, speaker, award-winning activist, and editor of the Bi Women Quarterly, the 42-country anthology, Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and the new anthology RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men, will be visiting Baruch College. Her writings have been published in numerous bi, women’s studies, multicultural, and LGBT anthologies and she has taught university courses in gender and sexuality studies.
An advocate for the rights of people of ALL orientations and genders to live safely, openly and with full access and opportunity, Robyn’s work focuses on increasing awareness and understanding of complex identities, and mobilizing people to be powerful allies to one another within and across identities and social movements.
While Robyn will be providing two college-wide workshops during the day (see below for further information), she has also set aside time for an informal meet-and-greet with Baruch College faculty and staff, from 3:30-4:30pm in NVC 2-125. Coffee and afternoon refreshments will be provided. This program is provided by Baruch College’s Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Equity Initiatives.
12:45pm-2:15pm: Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality NVC 2-125
This program explores the landscape of sexuality, and how we “map” sexual orientation. No two people are alike. Given that, how do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? In this interactive workshop we will conduct an anonymous survey of those present, and look together at the data. Where do we fall on the sexuality continuum? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities? In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the interplay between gender and sexuality; the complexities of attraction, and more. Cosponsored by the Women’s History Month Committee, Health & Wellness, and The Runnymeade Foundation.
6pm-8pm: Choosing to Label: What’s in a Name? NVC 2-125
Bi, lesbian, gay, straight, queer, questioning, choose-not-to-label, etc. How do you decide which label to use? What do labels do? What don’t they do? Is it possible to avoid labels? What is the difference between ascribed labels and labels we choose? How can we manage our identities in order to get the maximum benefit with the minimum cost? Let’s think creatively and proactively about identity. This is a participatory workshop, and all are welcome. Cosponsored by the Women’s History Month Committee, GLASS, Grad Pride, Health & Wellness, and The Runnymeade Foundation.
