This talk works in modes auto-theoretical, historical, and speculative, through several fault lines in contemporary trans politics and culture of gender, sexuality, and race. Considering broadly what it could mean to sometimes turn away from transgender and back towards the “sexual” in transsexual, I mine several scenes of desire, aggression, pathologization, and racialization in left trans feminism as a practice of intimacy in community, sex, historiography and digital space.

Co-hosted by the Gen/Sex reading group and will be facilitated by the organizers of the group--Jacob Myers, Matty Hemming and Nat Rivkin. Please contact Jacob Myers (jamyers@sas.upenn.edu) for the Zoom link.
