New Books on Trans Childhoods

November 2, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Join authors Gayle Salamon and Tey Meadow for a reading and discussion of two new books that trace different trajectories of contemporary trans childhoods. Tey Meadow will read from her book, Trans Kids: Being Gendered in the Twenty-First Century, an ethnographic study of a generation of families actively supporting children through gender transitions. Gayle Salamon will read from her book The Life and Death of Latisha King: A Critical Phenomenology of Transphobia, in which she examines the case of 15-year-old Latisha King, a trans girl who was shot and killed by a classmate and misidentified as a gay boy in the subsequent murder trial. The authors will explore the roles of racial and class stratification in the emergence of trans lives, and chronicle the ways parents, teachers, doctors and lawyers–in giving or withholding gender from trans kids–shape how livable trans lives can be.

 

Reading and discussion will be followed by a reception and book signing.

Suggested donation of $10 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds.
