The event will feature a presentation by Ms. Kai Cheng Thom, who will speak on queer and trans inclusion in non-profit spaces. She will discuss how the YMCA can engage in non-performative solidarity with 2SLGBTQIA+ people, particularly within the context of neoliberalism, present on her children’s book, From the Stars in the Sky to the Fish in the Sea, as an example of how to introduce conversations on gender and identity within our early learning and childcare learning materials, and introduce her free Conflict Resolution Workbook, So You’re Ready to Choose Love, as a resource for organizations/individuals responding to homophobia and transphobia.
