Girl Talk: A Trans & Cis Woman Dialogue

Girl Talk Banner

I am ridiculously excited to announce that I’ll be participating in this year’s Girl Talk: A Trans & Cis Woman Dialogue. Here’s the info about the show:

Queer cisgender women and queer transgender women are allies, friends, support systems, lovers, and partners to each other. Trans and cis women are allies to each other every day — from activism that includes everything from Take Back the Night to Camp Trans; to supporting each other in having “othered” bodies in a world that is obsessed with idealized body types; to loving, having sex, and building family with each other in a world that wants us to disappear.

Girl Talk is an annual spoken word show fostering and promoting dialogue about these relationships. Trans and cis women will read about their relationships of all kinds – sexual and romantic, chosen and blood family, friendships, support networks, activist alliances. Join us for a night of stories about sex, bodies, feminism, activism, challenging exclusion in masculine-centric dyke spaces, dating and breaking up, finding each other, and finding love and family.

Curated & hosted by Gina de Vries, Elena Rose, & Julia Serano.

And here’s all the logistics info:

Thursday, March 29th, 2012
7:00pm – 10:00pm
San Francisco LGBT Community Center – Rainbow Room
1800 Market Street between Octavia & Laguna
Tickets: $12-$20 (no one turned away!)
BUY TICKETS HERE – Brown Paper Tickets Link. We strongly recommend that you get tix in advance — we sold out very fast last year.

They’re not kidding about buying your tickets now.

I feel incredibly blessed that I currently live in San Francisco and get to participate in this groundbreaking event. Check out the full line up of performers. I so cannot wait to see this show.

I’ve never been able to attend before, but I’ve watched video of past performances online, and they’re pretty epic. One of my favorite performances from last year (what a meaningless statement when they’re all so good) is after the jump.

I hope to see you at Girl Talk 2012!

    It is a really, really bad idea to label all “non-trans” women cisgender.
