The community workshop sessions and the public forum will assess  the role that religion plays in the expression of gender and sexual diversity among South Asian youth in the GTA.

How do religious and cultural communities and Canadian values of assimilation and multiculturalism intersect to produce ambiguities, challenges, and opportunities for young South Asian Canadians in their gender expression and formation of sexual identities?
