Location: HARVEY MILK CIVIL RIGHTS ACADEMY,

Class Fee: $40
Todays highly visible transgender movement is the
continuation of a century of experience and activism.
From the beginning it has been an international effort to
gain self-determination and medical and legal
recognition, with heroes, villains, triumphs and defeats
in every decade. The experiences of transsexuals,
transgenderists, cross-dressers and intersexuals have
interwoven as definitions of sex, gender, perversion and
disorder evolved from Victorian to Post-Modern. This
class will explore the people and the issues they faced
as the transgender community formed and helped create
todays celebration of diversity. The medical,
scientific, cultural and legal changes brought about by
determined transgender people will be covered. We will
also collectively analyze strategies and tactics that
might be used in the future. This class is for
transgender people and others who wish to understand
where we have been and where we might be going.
