November 8 is finally here, and I’m in the house to take part in a symposium on the University of Chicago campus entitled Representing Trans*
The symposium kicks off at 1:30 PM CST with a ‘Sociological Approaches to
Trans Representation’ panel moderated by Dr. Kristen Schilt of the
University of Chicago. The panelists for this discussion will be Vivian Namaste, Tey Meadow, and Salvador Ortiz-Cruz.
Then it will move to the 3:30 PM panel I’ll be taking part in entitled ”Artistic and Activist Approaches To Trans
Representation.’ moderated by Chase Joynt.. In addition to your favorite award winning blogger, my fellow panelists will be Amos Mac, Tiq Milan, Jen Richards, and Ariel Schrag. All five of us definitely will have something to say about this topic, and this should
be a fascinating discussion scheduled to run until 5:00 PM..
Both of those panels will take place in the Gray Center Lab Midway Studios at 929 E 60th St.
Then at 6:30 PM we move the symposium action to the Logan Center For the Arts and an Evening with Kate Bornstein. You’ll get to see this legendary author, playwright, gender theorist and performance artist live and in person
Logan Center is located at 915 E. 60th St. for those of you in the Chicagoland area wishing to attend this event.
And I’ll let y’all know if I got to destroy that Giordano’s Pizza I was fiending for ever since I confirmed I was coming to Chicago.
