In this episode of Science & Cocktails, Professor Michael Pepper will examine the relationships between biological sex, sexual orientation and gender.

What is Gender and Sexual Diversity (GSD) and how is it perceived in our society? What is the impact of an inability to embrace this diversity? What are the definable elements, from a biological perspective, which contribute to GSD? Can healthcare professionals distinguish between the different components of GSD, and should they do so?

In this episode of Science & Cocktails Johannesburg, Professor Michael Pepper will examine the relationships between biological sex (physical and psychological), sexual orientation and gender.

Pepper will expand on the important implications that the interrelationship between biological sex, sexual orientation and gender identity has in our society and discuss whether acquiring a more in-depth understanding of the mechanisms leading to GSD can improve its acceptance in society.
