Event Time and Date

Friday, March 31 2017, 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Our bodies are constantly being read. Read as a woman. Read as Brown. Read as attractive. Read as disabled. Read as Muslim. Read as elderly. Read as inviting. Read as threatening. Read as ugly. Read as one of us.

How and why do the ways we move our bodies get coded as "effeminate," "sexy," or "masc"? How does this coding change with race, gender identity, and dis/ability? Why are some bodies desexualized and others hypersexualized? What does it mean to "create a femme-ness that can hold physically disabled folks, dark skinned people, trans and gender non-conforming folks, poor and working class folks" (in the words of Mia Mingus)
