This Funzing Experience:
The word 'unnatural' is often used as a slur, especially against people who are LGBTQAI+, polyamorous, or in any way non-traditional. But is it true?

Antonia Forster is a bisexual, polyamorous biologist that wants to set the record straight. Do we see queerness in the animal kingdom? Do homosexual animals raise young? How many sexes are there (clue: it's more than two)? What do we really mean by a 'sex'?

Her talk will take us on a jaw-dropping tour of the animal kingdom, from clown-fish to hyenas, bees and bacteria. Prepare to question your most fundamental ideas of sex, gender, and love... and see the animal world as you've never seen it before!
