Gender Talk

Wednesdays 4:00-5:00 PM

Relaxed, accepting, inspired

Are you looking for an opportunity to learn, grow, and make a meaningful impact in your community?

In addition to hosting thoughtful discussions, Rachel and Jacob Patterson regularly present opportunities for members to become actively involved in LGBTQ advocacy. Some recent examples include a presentation to local school employees, marching in the Humboldt PRIDE Parade, and a research trip to San Francisco.

Whether you’re LGBTQ, friends with someone who is, or just want to know what Gender Talk is all about, you are invited to join the team!

Jacob & Rachel Patterson

“We founded Gender Talk in 2013 as a weekly opportunity for LGBTQ youth to foster community organizing, build support networks, create positive representation, and develop critical thinking and presentation skills.

In the years that have passed, Gender Talk has built a core group of fun and diverse young people to include members of the high school GSA (Gender and Sexuality Alliance).

We are very active in Del Norte and have partnered with many organizations to conduct training on the needs and experiences of LGBTQ youth.

Gender Talk has hosted movie nights, pop culture discussions, bake sales, and trips to San Francisco and Humboldt Pride.

Come be a part of this rapidly growing team!”
