or trans masculine umbrella as well as all those looking to affirm, to explore or are questioning a masculine gender identity and/or expression.

FLOWING HEARTS

Did you know that gender is not about being a man or a woman? Gender is how we express who we are in this world. It helps us define our presence authentically by allowing us to flow to, between, and from the binaries of masculine and feminine expressions. So if gender is expression, then what is identity?

Who is this group for?

Flowing Hearts is for anyone and everyone, ages 16 and over, who identify within the non-binary or gender queer umbrella as well as all those looking to affirm, to explore or are questioning a non-binary gender identity and/or expression.
