Recording: F*&K Your Beauty Norms: The Power of Trans Beauty, Mar 8, 2019

By now, most of us know that #TransIsBeautiful, but what implications does trans beauty have for everyone else? What lessons can trans leaders teach us about body positivity? Can the trans movement foster a more expansive definition of aesthetic beauty? Here's the secret: celebrating trans bodies and honoring trans beauty transforms culture not just for trans people, but for *all of us*. In this session, genderqueer/trans author Jacob Tobia will discuss the politics of trans beauty and share passages from their forthcoming memoir Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story. If you're curious about the myriad ways that trans people stand to transform beauty and fashion as we know them today -- from medical transition and hormones to body hair and "professionalism" -- this session's for you.
