Gender, Drag, and Binaries, Oh My: Let’s Talk About It!
Monday, November 22, 2021
Does drag challenge or reinforce the gender binary, or is that yet another binary?! Most of us have been socialized into an internalized gender as a strict binary. Unlearning can be contentious, uncomfortable, and confusing, particularly when we find examples of the binary reinforced within queer and trans spaces, such as in drag. This session will be an open discussion for us to dive into this and other topics. “Unlearners” at all levels are welcome!
