Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice for Cultural Competency

Lambda Literary Award finalist! As a young trans child in the early 70’s, he changed his name to Willy at age nine before public awareness, resources, and systemic support in the schools. He went on to be a leader in the lesbian of color movement of the 80’s and transgender movement of the 90’s. Join the author of Born on the Edge of Race and Gender: A Voice for Cultural Competency for a provocative reading and discussion about the unique, difficult, and sometimes comical experiences of transgender life, with resources on how to create trans-affirming systems throughout society. “Smart, illuminating, passionate, and often humorous, it is a wonderful read for anyone interested in transgender activism, intersectionality, and social justice more generally.” –Julia Serano, author of Whipping Girl
