Julius Liiv – I learned about the different definitions and systems of gender and sexual prefrences; tools to help me discuss the topic in schools and seeing how weirdly passionate some people are about almost made up issues.

Varvara Lyasheva – Hearing different opinions.

Other comments or anything else you would like to share? You can answer in your mother tongue if you want!

Julius Liiv – I didnt like the training. A lot of judgement and “i am right , you are wrong” type of people. I grade it 2/10. I did like the experience in whole – even a negative experience is a valuable experience. Privileged. I did like some things and certain special people.
