Creating a Dialogue and Building a Story

BY RAJ BALI
@ VOL 28 ON JUN 01, 2017

"It's a placement of onesself outside the norm and the mainstream. It's an identity that's perfect for society critique. 'Queer' is not a bad word. It's an owned word—a negative word that's been given a positive connotation by our community."

Raj Bali has spent the last year working to build a space for marginalized people to share their experience, create a dialogue and learn from one another. His experience informed this talk on queer representation and why it's essential to give more of the spotlight to marginalized voices.

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.
