Cross Points resumes with transgender panel

Marla Compton

Cross Points, the panel discussion series hosted by Equality March Texas, resumes Thursday, July 15, with “5 Things Genderqueer/Transgender people wished that Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual understood.”

“There are misconceptions and confusion about what is considered transgender,” said organizer Latisha McDaniel. “This will give the community the opportunity to ask questions they were afraid to ask.”

Elizabeth Pax, who considers herself genderqueer, will moderate. Two female-to-male, one male-to-female and one female impersonator will be on the panel.

Topics include: What is the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity? How should we deal with gender assumptions? How do we deal with activist assumptions? How can and should venues for the lesbian and gay community become more trans-friendly?
