Gender and Sexuality Expression through the Fluidity of Art

Thursday, June 15, 2023 • 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm (ET)

Free | Live Interactive Event

Facilitated by: Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC

Held Online via Zoom

This therapeutic community art session for LGBTQIA+ Renfrew alumni will focus on and honor the intersection of gender, sexuality, and eating disorder recovery. Participants will be invited to reflect on and create art about the meaning of pride, resilience, visibility, and advocacy in our recovery journeys.

#RenfrewHasPride: Pride is the promotion of self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual individuals as a social group. Eating disorders are known to disproportionately impact the LGBTQIA+ community, due to unique body image  and identify concerns, social conformity pressures and body dysmorphia that is known to effect its members. This June, we are proud to announce our Renfrew Has Pride campaign that is dedicated to advocating for, empowering and treating our LGBTQIA+ community and alum. Please join us every Thursday in June to recognize and celebrate Pride month in a variety of free community or professional events dedicated exclusively to our LGBTQIA+ community members or their treating professionals.
