Unity in Diversity --Queer and Trans History and Liberation; Speaker: Chrysanthemum Tran
8:00-9:15 a.m. Queer and Trans History and Liberation
Speaker: Chrysanthemum Tran

The state demands our “legal sex”, suggesting the inverse must exist: unlawful sex. Gender and sex have been long codified into the textual fabrics that shape our reality. Whether a dictionary recognizes new vocabularies or new laws spell out new definitions, gendered language persists across decades and locales. However, the mundanities of gender and sex are not without lethal consequences. This presentation confronts historical, legal and other found texts, and interventions that poetry can provide. Studied work includes from BIPOC and LGBTQ+ poets who reference historical and archival texts.
