Troubling Institutionalized Gender Normativity: Public Space, Binary-Busting and Trans Activisms
We are looking for empirical, theoretical and activist contributions to the topic of trans and gender non-conforming individual's participation and/or exclusion from sex segregated institutions and facilities. This would include, but is not limited to areas such as bathrooms, prisons, athletic teams, and women's colleges. In this session, we wish to look at the ways in which sex segregated institutions uphold biologically essentialist notions of sexual difference and create serious problems of access for trans, genderqueer and gender non-conforming communities. We would also like to discuss how transpeople and allies use their agency to challenge such gender normative policing and how these issues intersect with issues of race, class, sexuality, nation, age and disability, among other categories.
