The 12th annual Genderevolution conference is scheduled online in November. With the theme, “Shattering Binaries,” the conference is designed to create “a time and a space to come together across intersecting identities of gender, sex, race, class, generations, ability, beliefs, and politics.”
“Our goal is to shatter binaries, form alliances, friendships, and mentorships as we explore our individual and collective identities,” organizers said in a statement. “We celebrate our journey, struggle, transition, finding community, intersectionality, and resources.”
“Our theme this year is to teach us how to navigate the gray areas, the nuances in life, especially when gender is concerned. Not everything is binary, or black and white; we live in a world of uncertainty and Genderevolution is here to help navigate those tough subtleties with kindness and respect for one another,” they said.
“We encourage teachers, health and medical professionals, social workers, lawyers, law enforcement, community educators, activists, and everyone to attend to better understand gender and to better understand each other,” organizers said.
The event will be held Friday, Nov. 13, thru Saturday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Registration for the event is $25 for one day and $50 for two. Students and seniors receive a $5 discount per day.
