This talk opens with a short reading from Boylan’s bestselling memoir, She’s Not There, as well as the anthology It Gets Better, and will then open up into a discussion of gender and society. The talk touches upon Transgender 101 (a brief overview of the wide range of gender expression), and then moves outward to address the embracing of diversity in its many forms. The talk will be followed by Q&A with audience members.
