Join us for an afternoon of discussion around gender perception with academics, activists, artists, and thinkers from Switzerland and the US.

The program is organized in two parts: First, lectures from activists and leading academics in gender/queer research and law. Second, through roundtable discussions, explore the status of gender/queer studies and performance, medical and psychological views of gender, and notions of gender through law and activism that impact LGBT individuals, families, and communities.

Included in the afternoon is a performance/lecture by artist Keith Hennessey.

It is organized and supported by CounterPulse, zürich moves!, swissnex San Francisco, the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco, the City of Zürich Department of Culture, Presence Switzerland, and Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council.
