June 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
the Wrong Bathroom!” New book Debunks 21 Myths about Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People by Laura Erickson-Schroth and Laura Jacobs.

Bringing together the medical, social, psychological, and political aspects of being transgender today in the United States, “You’re in the Wrong Bathroom!”: And 20 Other Myths About Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming People unpacks the twenty-one most common myths about transgender people. Authors Laura Erickson-Schroth, MD, a psychiatrist, and Laura A. Jacobs, LCSW-R, a psychotherapist, address myths about trans identity (“all trans people are ‘trapped in the wrong body’”), sex and relationships (“most trans people do sex work and have HIV”), health and safety (“trans people are mentally ill and therapy can change them”), and history and community (“trans people and feminists don’t get along”).
