The last sixty years have seen a revolutionary change in attitudes to and laws around sex, sexuality, and gender identity in Western contexts. Now, the rainbow flag is arguably the most recognisable symbol of the West in the eyes of other regions. It is clear that there is much confusion, and many people are hurting. Christians often don’t know how to speak with compassion for those who struggle or lack clarity on these issues. This Master Class aims to help Christians understand and respond to our cultural confusion about sex and gender identity.

What ideas about gender identity are influencing children and young people in the West today? What are the underlying beliefs and values behind these ideas?

This is part 2 of a 5-part series on Sex and Gender: Understanding and Responding to Contemporary Confusion.
