Out in Oxford: Is Gender Identity a Choice?

LGBTQ+ Flag
Thursday, February 16, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:30pm
Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford

Information from the University of Oxford LGBT Advisory Group:

In conjunction with Pitt Rivers Museum and the Out in Oxford cross-museums LGBTQ+ trail project (http://www.ox.ac.uk/staff/news-listing/2016-06-15-get-involved-oxford-lg...) we will be exploring the difference and relationship between gender and sex. Are the concepts of 'male' and 'female' well defined and do their meanings differ in different circumstances? What is the relationship between our biology, our state of mind and our identity? How do we know whether we are male or female? Can I simply choose my gender or is there some other criterion I should fulfil?

Entry via Robinson Close, South Parks Road, OX1 3PP.
