Ever wondered what nonbinary and gender nonconforming really mean? Genderqueer writer Stuart Getty joined us with a charming guide that answers that question and many more.

In this livestreamed presentation, Stuart Getty unpacks all your burning questions in a fun, visual way, in conversation with local comedian Max Delsohn. With clips from their short documentary, and insight from their book How to They/Them, Getty introduced a gender-friendly primer that emphasizes that it’s about more than just bathrooms and pronouns—it’s about gender expression and the freedom to choose how to identify. While the pronoun they might only be for some, Getty shared how that freedom to choose is for everyone. Don’t miss this friendly, gentle introduction to gender, which starts with they/them pronouns as an entry point but covers so much more.
