Trans*101 with JAC Stringer - March 10, 2012 at 1 pm
Join us at the Center for an afternoon of education and conversation. All are welcome to come. See calendar: www.cincyglbt.com
"Gender is connected to every aspect of our lives; our identities, our sexualities, and how we experience the world. This workshop sorts out the mass of labels, terms, and theories surrounding gender through the experiences and language of trans* / gender non-conforming communities. We will ask why we think about gender, how culture and practices interact with and affect trans* people today, and find commonalities that will help us build a more inclusive, just community."
