Gender-Fluidly Yours, at NYC’s LGBTQ Center!

Gender-Fluidly Yours, at NYC’s LGBTQ Center!

 

NYC’s LGBTQ Center in Manhattan, known simply as “The Center” in my days there, played an important role in my life, which I discuss in my memoir Born Both: An Intersex Life. So I couldn’t be any happier to present my book reading, “GENDER-FLUIDLY YOURS: AN EVENING OF QUEER NON-BINARY NON-FICTION WITH HIDA VILORIA & JEFFREY MARSH” there, at the Center’s Bureau of General Services, Queer Division (BGSQD)!

October 11th, 2017, 7 – 9 PM EST
Bureau of General Services—Queer Division
212 620 7310 x300
208 West 13th Street, Room 210
New York, NY, 10011, United States
$10 suggested donation.

I invited the fabulous Jeffrey Marsh, fellow non-binary/genderqueer pioneer, to join me for this to read from their book How To Be You, with a discussion to follow, so it should be a hoot. Look forward to seeing &/or meeting you there! 🙂
