Moni's Coming To Arizona
I've been invited to speak there on February 28 from 7-9 PM MST with the title of the discussion being TransGriot: Blogging at the Intersection of Race and Gender
It'll be at the Gallagher Theatre at the UA Student Union and is sponsored by ASUA Pride Alliance, the Women's Resource Center, and African American Student Affairs as part of their Black History Month.activities
I'm honored you gave me this opportunity, you know I'm looking forward to it, and I'll have a lot to talk about when I arrive.
I'm also looking forward to continuing a tradition I started when I began doing speaking engagements and add another collegiate coffee mug to my collection. At any college campus I'm invited to speak on, I make sure I get a university coffee mug from it..
Get to add a University of Arizona one to my collection.
As those of you who regularly read this blog know, in many ways African American transpeople were (and still are) key players in shaping the trans human rights push, were pioneering leaders, and even broke ground in some cases. I get to have fun not only discussing that, but my six years chronicling those intersections of race and gender at TransGriot and helping facilitate discussions about them.
Hope to see, meet and greet many of you UA students and Tucson area peeps there who read TransGriot, and I'll provide you with more details about the event as it draws closer.
