Have you ever wondered:

  • what the term “cisgender” really means?
  • who are the people who claim a transgender identity?
  • what the difference is between gender identity, biological sex, gender expression and sexual orientation?
  • what are the causes of transphobia and hate towards this community?

This fact-filled discussion attempted to put an end to misinformation, confusion, fear and denial. Juli Grey-Owens, Long Island and New York State Transgender Community advocate, talked openly about navigating in a world that is locked into the notion of only two genders. This fascinating tale of her life experiences will open your eyes to what gender really is, and what it takes to be successful in a society that does not easily accept any variation in gender roles.

Juli Grey-Owens is Executive Director of LITAC, one of the most active transgender rights groups in New York.
