Desription:

This VirTual Safe Zone Elective is an online five-week course addressing asexuality and intersex identities and issues. This course aims to

  • introduce participants to intersex and asexuality terminology;
  • analyze how the history of erasure and exclusion has contributed to the individual experiences of being intersex and asexual, separately, together, and at the intersections of race, gender and disability;
  • provide an understanding that in general intersex and asexuality are not "problems" that need to be "fixed";
  • provide the opportunity to engage in introspective or reflective thinking;
  • engage individuals in discussion with one another regarding their own understanding, feelings, and experiences with the course content.
