Presentation by Dr Meg John Barker PhD for the Trans* Emerging Trends Conference 2014.

Description from YouTube

One of the most interesting recent developments in relation to gender experience are the increasing numbers of people identifying in some way outside of the gender binary, for example as bigender, pangender, genderqueer, gender neutral, androgynous, or simply non-binary. The experiences and identifications of such folk challenge the male/female binary, as well as heteronormativity more widely, given the assumptions around binary gender that are embedded within this. There are also, perhaps, challenges here to binaries around trans/cisgender and bio/social understandings of sex and gender. In this presentation I'll explore the ways of being non-binary that are currently emerging, as well as some of the language which is developing to articulate those identities and experiences.
