Under the Umbrella Bookstore, 511 W 200 S Suite 120, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA


About the Event

See special objects from the Biology, Paleontology, Anthropology, and Entomology (bugs) collections that exemplify the many ways Nature is Queer; talk to an educator about gender expression and gender roles in plants, animals, and Indigenous cultures of the past and present; and get a chance to express yourself with hands-on activities!

Here's a preview of some of the queer animals you'll learn about:

  • Parthenogenic whip-tailed lizards - females reproduce asexually (there are no males)
  • Polyandrous birds - females mate with multiple males who rear young without female help
  • Gynadromorphic birds -   half male and half female.
