Prism to Host Robyn Ochs February 20

Prism will host Robyn Ochs on Monday, February 20 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. for two speaking events in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC) Ballroom.

How to Save the World AND Have a Good Time: Self-Care For Activists at 4 p.m.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed, unsupported, exhausted by your activism? Let’s come together to brainstorm strategies for taking care of ourselves while changing the world.

Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality at 7 p.m.

This program explores the landscape of sexuality, and how we ‘map’ sexual orientation. No two people are alike. Given that, how do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? In this interactive workshop we will conduct an anonymous survey of those present, and look together at the data. Where do we fall on the sexuality continuum? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities? In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the interplay between gender and sexuality; the complexities of attraction, and more.
