Saturday, October 24th from 10:30am to 12pm Pacific
The gender binary does not actually exist, but our beliefs about gender have indelibly shaped the world we move through. Lucie Fielding, therapist, sex educator, and author of the forthcoming book Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments, will join us to discuss gender as provocation, resistance, empowerment, play, and, most of all, a horizon imbued with possibility.

Gays and Lesbians Living In a Transgender Society (G.L.I.T.S.)
G.L.I.T.S. approaches the health and rights crises faced by transgender sex workers holistically using harm reduction, human rights principles, economic and social justice, along with a commitment to empowerment and pride in finding solutions from our own community. The first issue we address is that of immediate need/crisis support for transgender sex workers, including community members from the NYC area, across the US and globally through supporting asylum seekers from our priority communities. The next issue we address is health care and health resilience for transgender sex workers. We need to address this issue because our community is hypermarginalized and has a profound need for safe sex supplies and free/low cost health to address both trans specific and holistic needs. We currently work on housing since so many in our G.L.I.T.S.’ community are without stable housing, deepening the cycle of disenfranchisement. G.L.I.T.S. also advocates and educates to ensure health, wellness and inclusion of transgender people in our society and to address the stigmatization and criminalization of trans people because of anti-prostitution/anti-sex work laws.
