ANN ARBOR – What causes a person to be born transgender? How are transgender rights and gay rights connected? What is the history of the transgender rights movement?
These are some of the questions posed at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor campus on Sept. 23 when Deborah Rudacille addresses “The Riddle of Gender: Science, Activism, and Transgender Rights” beginning at 7:30 p.m.
In her book, “The Riddle of Gender,” which was released in February, Rudacille explores the complexities of gender variance including historical influences, scientific contributions, and current activism. Rudacille considers the social implications of scientific pursuits regarding gender, providing what Publishers Weekly has called research that is, “a good introduction for the educated lay reader and documented enough for the scholar.” (For a review of the book and interview with the author see “Science writer uses compassion, facts to explain ‘The Riddle of Gender'” online at www.pridesource.com https://www.pridesource.com/article.shtml?article=13735)
Rudacille’s talk will be held from 7:30-9 p.m. in the Hall of Evolution at the University of Michigan’s Exhibit Museum of Natural History, Ruthven Museums Building, 1109 Geddes Avenue in Ann Arbor. A reception will follow Rudacille’s talk.
Rudacille’s talk is sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Exhibit Museum of Natural History and the Office of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Affairs.
