Submission: Gender Diversity Film Series 2012
During the month of March 2012, the WSUV Sociology Club will be screening four films to increase understanding of gender diversity. These films will explore the limits of gender being polarized into a male-female binary in our society, with all of the expectations and assumptions that follow. We hope these films will give you the opportunity to rethink the way you look at the gender binary! Each film will have a free screening (open to the public), a group discussion, and free food courtesy of the Associated Students of WSU Vancouver.
– PHAME’s “H is for Honored Tour” continues with another free performance at the East Portland Community Center, 7:00pm.
