“GENDER REVOLUTION” MOVIE AND TRANS SPEAKER
Hosted by the LGBTQ Interest Group and the UU Learning Community
Saturday, April 27
Are you still struggling to understand this new and evolving world of gender identity? Please join us on Saturday, April 27, for a pizza dinner, followed by a showing of “Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric.” This 2017 documentary explores the differences between gender and sexual orientation, gender expression and gender identity, and illuminates some of our new understanding of the role of genes and hormones and gender confirmation surgery. After the movie, Noah Augustine, a member of the trans community (and Board member of OUT MetroWest), will share some of his own experiences and will answer questions.
6:00 p.m. Pizza and salad
6:30 p.m. “Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric”
8:00 p.m. Presentation by Noah Augustine, a member of the trans community
8:30 p.m. End of formal program
