This week's CASA will feature a workshop led by Donnavan that delves into the issue of authenticity. It begs the questions, What does it mean to be genuine/”the real
thing?” Together we will answer the question, “What does it mean to be
an authentic Queer person?” In doing so, we will begin to uncover some
very narrow definitions that can constrict Queer identity. Sure, Queer
folks are used to having their identity imposed upon by mainstream
society, but we will see that even within Queer communities, this
duality of “real” vs. “poser” can exist.
