Gender: Your Guide by Dr. Lee Airton

An authentic and accessible guide to understanding—and engaging in—today’s gender conversation. On sale now.

The days of two genders—male, female; boy, girl; blue, pink—are over, if they ever existed at all. Gender is now a global conversation, and one that is constantly evolving. More people than ever before are openly living their lives as transgender men or women, and many transgender people are coming out as neither men or women, instead living outside of the binary. Gender is changing, and this change is gaining momentum.

We all want to do and say the right things in relation to gender diversity—whether at a job interview, at parent/teacher night, and around the table at family dinners. But where do we begin?

Student Experiences: Tech. Ed. Community Cupboard for sharing food and school supplies

September 25, 2018
By: Daniel Troisi

My name is Daniel Troisi and I am a B. Ed. Teacher Candidate in Technological Education at Queen’s. I am a Red-Seal Chef by trade and hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Guelph where I studied Hotel and Food Administration. My experience at the faculty has been defined by my role on ESS as the Tech-Ed representative, as the recipient of the D.E Loney prize upon graduation and, finally, by my leadership role in creating Queen’s Community Cupboard.

Queen’s Community Cupboard is a project designed and developed by student’s in Technological Education. Located on Student Street by Jean Royce Hall, its mission is to provide Queen's Faculty of Education with an accessible space, where non-perishable food items and new school supplies can be donated and taken on a perpetual basis.
