CONFERENCE ON THE COUCH 2: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (30th Anniversary)
Holly Lewis (Moderator), Sandy Stone (Honored Guest), Asher Ford, Drew Riley, Celeste Chan, KB Boyce, Matt Richardson
Friday (2/17), 11:00am, OUThouse (3702 Robinson Ave.)
It’s been thirty years since Sandy Stone (OUTsider 2017 Legacy Award Winner) “struck back” against the forces of hate and normativity, instigating a transgender revolution within the academy. This panel will revisit Stone’s masterwork, “The Empire Strikes Back: A PostTransexual Manifesto,” with an eye toward the future of the field of Transgender Studies, as we celebrate the multitudinous mischief that Stone has, thankfully, unleashed over the years.
SPECIAL NOTE: This panel will be followed by an Awards Ceremony and celebratory brunch in honor of Stone. Raise them glasses to this year’s Legacy Award Winner!
