Understanding Attraction: Love Who You Love

  • The Chattery at Chattanooga WorkSpace 302 West 6th Street, Ste 3L Chattanooga, TN United States (map)

Love Who You Love. Attraction comes in all shapes, sizes, and intensities. Do you find all women (and only women) attractive? Do you have crushes on every single celebrity you see walk down the Red Carpet? Do you experience absolutely no sexual attraction no matter someone's gender? In this class, we'll answer these questions and more, discovering words to help us differentiate between being "in love," liking someone, and how using inclusive language can help you understand yourself and form new relationships with others.

About the teacher:

Jovie Wilkinson is a writer and teacher, exploring the intersection of gender, faith, doubt, and figuring out who you are. She graduated from Bryan College (2013) with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with emphases in linguistics, Greek, and psychology. As a secondary school teacher and higher education administrator, she pursued opportunities to teach and acquire further formal education before coming to terms with her own struggles in reconciling religion, doubt, and gender identity. As a part-time stay at home mom, barista, and blogger, Jovie uses her free time to write about her own experiences reconciling religious experiences, the queer community, and the day-to-day adventures of parenting.
