9 Aug: Workshop for Partners/Lovers of Sex & Gender Diverse People

Posted on 28 June 2009 by zbgc

Are you interested in discussing some of the issues that can arise for partners/lovers of sex and gender diverse people?

The Zoe Belle Gender Centre is running a workshop specifically for people who are or have been partners/lovers of sex and gender diverse people (people who are transgender, intersex, questioning their gender, etc.). People of all genders are welcome to attend. You don’t need to be in a relationship with a sex and gender diverse person.

Facilitated by psychologist Vikki Sinnott, this workshop will allow you to raise issues in a safe and supportive space. Some of the issues you might wish to discuss include:

  • reactions: there are many different ways that people become aware of their partner’s/lover’s gender identity and many different responses to this knowledge
  • sex and sexual identity: how might sexual dynamics change within a relationship? Partners/lovers can also question and explore their sexual identity
  • getting support: partners/lovers of sex and gender diverse people may have particular needs that are not easily met. Where and how can they get support?

Vikki Sinnott is a psychologist whose experience and interest includes gender identity and sexuality issues. She has provided individual therapy to sex and gender diverse adults and young people, and to their partners/significant others and families. She has also facilitated a number of one-off and on-going discussion groups for partners of sex and gender diverse people, both in Victoria and NSW.
