Upcoming queer trans women & cis women events!

First, SF Bay Area folks, save the date: On Thursday, March 29th, me & my co-curators Gina de Vries and Elena Rose will be presenting the fourth annual Girl Talk, a cis and trans woman dialogue! Rest assured, I will be posting more details in the very near future. (more info about Girl Talk more generally, including video clips from the 2011 show, can be found by following the above link)...

Also, speaking of events that foster dialogue between queer cis and queer trans women, last week I tweeted about the following conference, but for those who missed it:

this Saturday (January 21) in Toronto is an awesome day-long event called: No More Apologies: Queer Trans and Cis Women, Coming/Cumming Together! All the details are available in that link.

Yay, lots of awesome art & community building! more to come! -j.

  1. I'm excited to hear about the 4th Girl Talk! I'll be in town then, hope it doesn't overlap with my own event and that I can come.

Feel free to leave a comment. Dissenting opinions are welcome, provided that they are respectful (i.e., non-flaming).

Unfortunately, my blog seems to be a magnet that attracts people who have misconceptions about, or who are fundamentally opposed to, trans folks, and who want to leave comments here about how I am "wrong" about gender, or feminism, or my own experiences or identity as a trans woman. Such comments will not be posted. If you want to spout anti-trans rhetoric, find another venue. If you are simply "confused" about trans people, then I recommend picking up a copy of my book Whipping Girl, because I debunk most misconceptions about trans folks and trans feminism there.

Due to recent online harassment I've experienced, all comments will be moderated from here forward, so there will be a delay before your comments are posted on this site.
