The Gender and Sexuality Issue

  • Graphic Madeleine Gendreau

Society’s definitions of gender, sex and sexuality are changing constantly.

While more and more people are becoming aware of the implications of these topics on our day-to-day lives, we at The Link believe it is crucial to continue talking about them.

We must ask ourselves why our opinions are shaped the way they are, and how the power structures around us shape our thought processes about, well, everything.

This issue is by no means certain of itself. We attempted to stress narratives, individual experiences and the hard facts surrounding being alive in a gendered or sexualized body today—but we’ve certainly left many stories out, and who knows how this paper will read ten years, or even five years down the line.

Regardless of redefinitions, missteps or otherwise, The Link knows that this is a conversation that needs to continue being talked about. As a society, we cannot take these topics off the table. It’s imperative that we continue to consider, redefine and continue to move forward.

So, with that in mind, The Link presents this, The Gender and Sexuality Special Issue, 2016.
