|The gender galaxy by Dylan Vade and Abe Bernard
We trannies want to come out and play! Women’s spaces, men’s spaces where do trans people belong? How can we create welcoming inclusive environments? Are there ways to create non-inclusive environments that are respectful? Trans inclusion brings up issues of community, safety, female and male energy and bonding, bodies, identities, fear of the unfamiliar, and genitals. How to navigate this terrain?!
With candor and humor. We start the workshop with a short film of eight fabulously dressed up genitals that speak about trans inclusion. (The award winning fairytale “Trannymals Go To Court”) Then, with group activities, we explore the inclusion of people with different bodies and identities in play spaces. The activities will include googley eyes, glitter, and group puppet theater.
How you will benefit from this presentation:
Workshop attendees will get the opportunity to openly explore trans-inclusion.
How this presentation will arouse you:
We will arouse lively and honest discussion with group genital puppet theater. (The genitals during the workshop will be made out of cardboard, but we will provide accessories for post-workshop genital decorating.).
