Building Beloved Community Beyond the Binary
Action Date(s): February 11, 2017 - 8:30 am to 4:00 pm EST
Our congregation will be hosting a conference on gender identity entitled "Building Beloved Community Beyond the Binary." Our keynote speaker will be Kate Bornstein. Celebrated transgender trailblazer Kate Bornstein has–with humor and spunk–ushered us into a world of limitless possibility through a daring re-envisionment of the gender system as we know it. Kate lives on the edge of paradox: she is not a man, and not a woman. She looks beyond the binary to see gender as both a conscious practice, and a playful journey. And we are lucky enough to be welcoming Kate as our keynote speaker. If you have ever heard her speak (and if you haven’t you should!) you know that this will be special! In addition to Kate we will be offering many workshops. Some of them are intended for folks who want to be good allies but don’t know much about gender-nonconforming issues. Workshops such as trans 101, and a panel of gender non-conforming folk. Some of the workshops are designed especially for folks who live beyond the binary; workshops such as trans inclusive medicine, trans parenting, DASA (Dignity for All Students Act). Some are focused on the future – a De-escalation workshop and a workshop entitled “What Now Where Do We Go From Here.”
