Description

Join Behc Jax-Lynx and Kaeden Seburn as they present two separate workshops based on their most recent writings and research.

Speaker Behc Jax- Lynx

Female to Myself. Personal Reflections of Being Transgender within the Social Services

In Female to Myself, Behc Jax-Lynx shares their vulnerable and authentic personal story of exploring and navigating their gender identity and gender expression while working within social service organizations over the past 15 years. Behc discusses the complexities, heartbreaks and resiliency of being the ‘transgender patient’ while simultaneously being the ‘transgender professional’ throughout a period of expansive learning and growth. This autobiographical presentation weaves the past into the present while exposing,gender stereotypes and casting light on the gendering of space. Through personal narrative, Behc offers rich reflections on homelessness, self-medicating, mental health and education culminating in their visions for more sustainable and healthy futures.

Speaker Kaeden Seburn

Stop Assessing Us: A Practical Guide to Gender Affirming Care Supporting Trans, Nonbinary and Gender Diverse Youth

Kaeden Seburn (they/he pronouns) is a social work student at Carleton University and trans and nonbinary community organizer, activist and educator. Join them as they unpack the current common practices of care for trans, nonbinary and gender diverse youth and their links to the historical and current medicalization of trans communities. Drawing on the global movement to depathologize trans identities, Kaeden will present a youth-informed approach to practice and facilitate a practical discussion about how we can move away from the assessment process and towards a truly gender affirming model of care.

Our workshops, presentations and events take place on land that we reside on as visitors, guests and settlers. We thank you for allowing us to be guests on your land. We thank you.

Holding our communities in thought - we send love, care, honor and pay respect to those who came before us, to those who are not with us today and to those who will follow us into the future. It is our gender diverse beings who have set up the road map, guidance and grounding which enables us to be able to work and speak in public spaces. We thank you.
