Riki Anne Wilchins is Chicago-bound!


Riki Anne Wilchins, gender activist and author, is coming to Chicago this Thursday afternoon to Loyola to speak with Judy Shepard on Hatred and LGBTQ Community Support.

Riki's book, Read My Lips: Sexual Subversion and the End of the Gender largely inspired the founding of Genderqueer Chicago and informed its mission to be fiercely inclusive and affirming across identities. Wilchins also edited GENDERqUEER: Voices from Beyond the Binary, and authored Queer Theory, Gender Theory. Wilchins was a founding member of the Transexual Menace, Camp Trans, and GenderPAC.

Those who want to attend must register to do so. Click here for more information.

  1. I am so excited! Thank you for posting this! Riki Wilchins has been on my list of people I've want to see speak for ages (also on the list: Kate Bornstein, Leslie Feinberg, and Dean Spade, Feinberg being the only one I've not seen).
