Gender and sexuality are becoming increasingly important issues in modern society. In this masterclass, we'll discuss sexual orientation and gender identity, with a focus on issues around the concept of binary gender, same-sex relationships and the LGBTQ+ community.

We'll use case studies to create discussion around the psychological impact of being a member of the LGBTQ+ community, including the difficulties and benefits.

The session will be delivered by a leading member of academic staff and has been designed for anyone who has an interest in pursuing a career in psychology.
