Those Birds and Bees Just Ain’t Gonna Fly! Sharing Sex Education Strategies For Trans Youth with Cory Silverberg
August 3, 2013Saturday, August 3 Gender Odyssey Family Conference Seattle, WA
Cory Silverberg hosts a workshop at the Gender Odyssey Family Conference in Seattle.
Talking about sex with kids is challenging for every parent, and parents with trans and gender-independent children have extra complexities to consider. As parents of trans or gender-independent children, the challenge isn’t just getting across the basic information, it’s to communicate the information best suited for their kids with the goal of helping them to think critically about what we learn from our culture, community, and institutions. In this workshop Cory Silverberg will lead discussion about what information exists and what doesn’t, and explore how parents can follow their child’s lead to promote happiness and safety.

June 1, 2013What Makes a Baby New York Book Launch Saturday, June 1st @ 2:30pm Bank Street Books Broadway & 112th St New York, NY
On Saturday, June 1st, Cory Silverberg will be at Bank Street Books to celebrate the launch of his new book, What Makes a Baby.
Most books about where babies come from leave many of us out. They tell a nice story (mommy + daddy + intercourse = you!) but the truth is that more and more of us are acknowledging the help we get to bring children into our lives. That help might be a doctor, fertility clinic, adoption or foster agency; it might be a turkey baster and a friend; it might be a sperm donor or a surrogate. What Makes a Baby helps parents tell children a story about where they came from that isn’t just true for them, but true for everyone.
Join Cory for a kid-friendly afternoon filled with reading, coloring (pulled straight from the pages of What Makes a Baby), food, drink, and discussions about where babies—all babies—come from.
