Throughout the history of the LGBTQA+ community, a common attack has been that "it's not natural" to be lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, asexual or other. This informal lunchtime seminar will debunk the myth of "unnatural" sexuality by looking at a wide range of examples of LGBTQA+ taken from the natural world (featuring examples you probably have heard of and a whole load of examples that you probably haven't yet - from bison to bonobos, from giraffes to gynandromorphs). Tony Michael (Faculty of Science & Engineering, School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences) has designed an accessible, thought-provoking seminar which requires no prior knowledge of biology. (The seminar should take around 50 mins, but Tony is happy to stay online to take questions on examples of LGBTQA+ in the natural world.)
