SECOND TUESDAY LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS “SORTED: GROWING UP, COMING OUT, AND FINDING MY PLACE (A TRANSGENDER MEMOIR)” BY JACKSON BIRD

October 8, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

$10

“Sorted” is an unflinching and endearing memoir from LGBTQ+ advocate Jackson Bird about how, through a childhood of gender mishaps and an awkward adolescence, he finally sorted things out and came out as a transgender man in his mid-20s.

When Jackson Bird was 25, he came out as transgender to his friends, family and anyone in the world with an internet connection. Assigned female at birth, he often wondered if he should have been born a boy. Jackson didn’t share this thought with anyone because he didn’t think he could. Growing up in Texas in the 1990s, he had no transgender role models. He barely remembers meeting anyone who was openly gay, let alone being taught that transgender people existed outside of punchlines.

From his first shot of testosterone to his eventual top surgery, Jackson lets you in on every part of his journey—taking the time to explain trans terminology and little-known facts about gender and identity along the way. Through his captivating prose, Bird not only sheds light on the many facets of a transgender life, but also demonstrates the power and beauty in being yourself, even when you’re not sure who “yourself” is.

All donations are voluntary and any amount is appreciated.
