Into the Rainbow

BY KIM DUNHAM
@ VOL 6 ON OCT 25, 2018

As far as Kim Dunham's topic, she is graduating in December with a BA in Gender and Women's Studies. Her area of focus was Queer Theory. Her wife is a trans woman and is currently in the beginning stages of physical transition and we have 2 kids (an 8 year old who is hers from a previous relationship and a 5 month old baby). My wife's transition and the birth of a new baby brought about a lot of "boy or girl" talk, and she hopes to shine a light on nonbinary genders.
