Transfeminism: Beyond Bodily Binaries Towards Gender Fluidity says
Pride Human Rights Conference: Transfeminism: Beyond Bodily Binaries Towards Gender Fluidity:
Can we apply feminist ideas and ideals to discourse about trans communities? Can we create spaces for trans subjectivity within the feminist movement, beyond gender binaries? And if so, how can we create a theory and practices that are focused on the experiences of trans communities but are relevant to all? This panel will look at some of these questions and more by bringing together key voices to discuss the emergence of transgender visibility, reversing hegemonic concepts of gender and moving towards gender and sexual fluidity.

This panel will be moderated by Dr. Laura Mae Lindo, Director of Wilfrid Laurier University’s Diversity and Equity Office, with expertise in anti-oppression pedagogy and education. The panelists include Professor Jack Halberstam, academic and author of Gaga Feminism: Sex, Gender, and the End of Normal; Professor Kathryn Bond Stockton, specialist in queer theory and author of Beautiful Bottom, Beautiful Shame: Where “Black” Meets “Queer”; and Professor Anne Sauvagnargues, specialist in the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze.

Presented by Pride Toronto in partnership with the 10th International Deleuze Studies Conference and The 519.​

Venue: The 519 Ballroom, 519 Church Street, Toronto
