Love In Transition Pt 1: Social Transition “coming out”

Love In Transition Pt 1: Social Transition “coming out”

Sunday 21 February, 1pm - 2.15pm

Studio One, Toi Tū  1 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby
Free Event

There is a lot of info out there about transgender parent and child relationships, but there’s shocking little about how a transitioning partner can impact romantic and/or intimate relationships. This two-part workshop is for trans and gender diverse people and/or those who love them (trans or cis) with a lens for queering relationships in new and exciting directions while navigating a lot of change. It’s for any gender, sexual/asexual, solo/mono/poly relationship style, in or out of any relationship. While friends, family, and poly “pod-mates” are welcome to come, it will be focused on romantic attachment and sexual activity will be mentioned in Part 2. You can attend one or both at your discretion.

Topics for Love in Transition Part 1: Social Transition “coming out”

  • When, How, to whom do we come “out” safely, or stay “in” for safety to a partner or as a partner of a gender diverse person.
  • Individual Choices & Team Consequences: whose is what
  • Developing secure Attachment in an insecure World
  • 52 label pickup: incorporating time and space to play with words
  • The Gender/Sexuality Identity Ripple effect: how presentation impacts friends, family, communities, and sense of self
  • Front Line Advocacy in Public Spaces
  • How Help can Hinder: Support & Codependency
  • Love in Transition: seperating, staying, and falling in love again.

If it may apply to you or someone you like/love, please stay for Part 2:

Ren (trans non-binary, they/them pronouns) and Willow Lunicke (transgender woman, she/her pronouns) are a long term queer couple with a polyamorous relationship who have navigated many aspects of social and medical transition together. *While they have consulted certified clinical psychologists, neither of them hold those certifications and their opinions are not a replacement for professional medical advice.
