Genderevolution 2014: Gender Uprising - November 15th
Where: Rowland Hall - 843 Lincoln Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84102
Genderevolution is the pinnacle event of Trangender Education and Awareness Month.
The purpose of the Genderevolution is to:
- Foster community building among trans* folk and allies alike, to help create a strong and safe space to push gender boundaries in the Salt Lake City area.
- Educate employees, cisgender/non-trans* folk, trans* folk, health and mental care providers, and allies about the myths and realities of gender.
- Celebrate trans* identities in an inclusive, healthy and positive way.
We are proud to host a nationally renowned speaker for the conference. The speaker garners national recognition and will attract participants from all across Utah and surrounding states. Utah will welcome:
Pat Manuel, also known as "Cacahuate(Peanut)" is a transmasculine QPOC who has shaped his masculine identity in boxing gyms around Los Angeles, CA. A 5x national amateur champion, Pat was a participant in the first ever Women's Olympic Boxing Trials and was the only vocally out queer fighting in the history of USA Boxing's Olympic Box-Offs. Medically disqualified after the first fight of the tournament, Pat struggled with ways other than visibility to aide his community. Since joining the Brown Boi Project in 2013, he has decided to use his knowledge as a trainer and athlete to empower other through physical fitness. Pat created Buffbutch.com, a website intending to fill the void of queer fitness interests. When he isn't training, Pat is usually fond of enjoying cookies and dreaming of becoming a giant robot pilot.
At the 6th Annual Gender Conference, we aim to deconstruct gender mythology, explore the implications of socially constructed gender norms, and integrate our many intersecting identities.
We are also excited to welcome our partners in the community who will have a presence at the conference:
- Transgender Education Advocates (TEA) of Utah
