To simplify the many complexities of our world, humans naturally reach for labels. We use them to categorize others and describe ourselves. But labels evolve over time: some fall out of favor, others are redefined, and new ones are introduced. In this episode, you will meet Stephen Guerriero, a veteran middle school social studies educator, who will take us back to ancient times to help demystify labels and shed new light on sexual orientation and gender identity.
