Session: Experiences of Gender Beyond the Binary
Facilitator: Bethany M. (bee) Coston
Panelists: Liz Coston, Austin Higgs, Peter Jenkins
Description: The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE)’s 2015 U.S. Trans Survey showed that a third of transgender people identify as non-binary, gender conforming, genderqueer or otherwise not within the binary categories of man and woman. This panel discussion will explore the diversity and complexity of the lived experiences of individuals who identify outside of the binary. Panelists will speak on their experiences as non-binary people and allow plenty of time for Q&A dialogue with the audience.
