She/her – They/them – He/him
At Potemkino we choose to use inclusive language.
Everyone should be able to pick the pronouns that they’re most comfortable with. It doesn’t matter if it’s male, female or genderneutral. We want to make sure everyone feels included and avoid the notion that the use of pronouns is easy for everyone.
If you want to learn more about gender identity, make sure to check out the website LGBT Life Center. Please contact us if you have any questions.
