Building an Inclusive Vocabulary on Transgender and Disability Studies through Film

What is gender? How does gender intersect with racial identities? How do we maintain a safe space for trans visibility? Further, why is trans visibility not always empowering or desirable? Come and learn about the critical issues with today’s vocabulary about gender as well as a quick history of representations of transgender individuals in popular media in this interactive, illustrated 60-minute session. Through copious film clips, we will learn how to rethink familiar films and television series through a trans-inclusive and trans-positive perspective.
