in this update:

hello, and happy equinox weekend! here is what's new:

1) consider bringing julia out to your campus!

So a new academic year has begun, and as always, I am looking forward to having the opportunity to speak/perform at various colleges & universities this year!

If you are affiliated with a college - especially if you belong to a trans, LGBTQIA+, and/or feminist-related organization - please consider bringing me out to your campus! And even if you aren't associated with a college yourself, please feel free to forward this onto people that you know who are students, staff, or faculty somewhere.

For those interested, I have a recently updated "booking" webpage ( containing most of the pertinent info, including short descriptions of some of my most frequently requested talks. I have also added two new presentations for this year: "Recognizing the B and T in LGBTQ" (discussing bisexual/pansexual and transgender/gender-variant activism, within both queer settings and the straight mainstream), and "A Holistic View of Feminism" (where I discuss some of the central ideas of my next book, which I hope to be published sometime in 2013).

After a long period of disregard, I recently revamped several pages of my website. There is much new stuff to be found! Here are some of the pages that have been updated:

  1. You have a book coming out soon? Yay - at last! :D


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 and/or my own experiences & 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 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.
