Worrisome gazes?

Pride and/or shame when you do or do not show your differences, pleasure and/or pains you may feel when you look at someone or when you are being looked at.

"Gazes" regarding our sex, gender and sexuality overflow all around us--from our close relationships to public spaces.

Why don't you come by for a chat about the uncomfortable, happy and harsh aspects regarding "looks/gazes" in connection with gender and sexuality?

We'll enjoy tea and coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:
"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me"
"I might be attracted to both men and women"
"I have no interest in romance"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man"
"I have a man's body, but I want to be seen as a woman"
"I don't want others to determine my gender for me"
"I don't want to put a label on my sexual identity."

Besides these examples, if you have something else in mind and want to talk it over, please feel free to bring it up. With beverages and snacks prepared, we are waiting for you to come chat with us!
