I’m a student in several gender studies courses. For me, your lecture was amazing because it connected in so many ways to what I’ve been doing in classes all semester. But I also loved it because you opened up so many minds. Since the crowd was people who are either in Rainbow Alliance, or friends of people in Rainbow Alliance, nobody attending could necessarily be accused of having a closed mind per se, but I think many of the people there did consider sexuality (and gender) as black or white. Your lecture and the activity in the lecture really helped people understand the complexity behind gender and sexuality.
