QCC Continuing Education: The Unique Superpowers of n’Betweeners
**Please note: This is a Continuing Education Course ONLY for students who are enrolled and have completed the Queer Competency Certification program.**
Queer competency means knowing the unique gifts of being queer and/or trans.
Queer and trans people may identify as n’betweeners, people who often don’t feel they belong, regularly code switch, and feel isolated in their experience.
Powerlessness often shows up for us as we navigate systems of oppression as marginalized beings. It is therefore crucial to recognize that there is a way out, that we all have innate power.
Every time queer and trans people try to mold themselves into the dominant narrative we give away our power.
Every time queer and trans people try to mold themselves into the dominant narrative we give away our power. We underestimate ourselves and we deprive ourselves of our unique gifts.
In this training, you’ll learn the meaning of being an n’betweener and the challenges and strengths that n’betweener’s possess. You’ll also gain tools to help you identify and recognize your innate power.
