Activist, author, advocate Kate Bornstein will deliver a free talk about LGBTQ history and rights, as well as the evolution of gender identity in our culture. This talk celebrates the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and is brought to you by the Cville Trans Peer Group, the UVA department of Women’s and Gender Studies, and Equality Virginia.
Who is Kate Bornstein? As noted on her blog:
Kate has been on the road lecturing and performing for over 25 years, at colleges, high schools, and anywhere people gather to talk about gender. She’s now writing a new book: Trans! Just For the Fun Of It: compassionate gender strategies for divisive times, sections of which she’s developing interactively on her blog, where she invites your input and feedback.
If you haven’t read Kate’s work or heard her speak before, get ready—she is the radical role model, the affectionate best friend, and the guiding mentor all in one. You will come away energized, comforted, and full of hope.
