The Bay Area Book Festival presents “Trans Voices in Literature,” a panel discussion featuring Seal Press author Julia Serano (Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive and Whipping Girl:A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity) and Zander Keig (Manning Up: Transsexual Men on Finding Brotherhood, Family & Themselves), moderated by Willy Wilkinson (Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice For Cultural Competency).
Trans authors illuminate the profoundly liberating experience of living an authentic life, challenging readers to question traditional notions of gender and vocalizing the impact of all-too-pervasive discrimination. Join this diverse panel of trans authors as they discuss how their work addresses the interplay between trans experience and race, culture, family, politics and community membership.
Sessions are free but may fill up! Register now on Eventbrite.
