Beyond the Binary

Looking for peer support in regards to gender identity, sexuality, relationships, or even supportive and affirming friendships?

This gender identity spectrum support group is a safe, supportive space for undergraduate and graduate students, particularly those who are exploring or identify as transgender, gender-fluid, non-binary, or gender-nonconforming.

Potential topics of discussion include challenges of coming out to self and others, identity development, limitations of labels, negotiating gendered environments, identity-affirming relationships, coping with minority stress and gender binary norms, accessing supportive health and social services, aspects of transitioning process, and adjustment to social identity, family dynamics, and impacts on wellness, needs, and impact of being closeted and being TGNB at MSU.

Status: Virtual

Thursdays, 3:30–5 p.m.
Sept. 16–Nov. 18

Facilitators: Ginny Blakely, LMSW
