Tania Israel, PhD. will view with us her TED talk “Bisexuality and Beyond”, and then receive and answer questions from our group. Binary systems are so easy for us humans and for that matter computers. The problem is it leaves lots of things out, and in leaving lots of things out, lots of opportunities and understandings are missed. Tania Israel takes us to a non binary world while she talks about her idea of sexuality.
