Abstract Title: The Water Closet: Ungendering Bathrooms
Abstract Type: Workshop
Abstract: Using the bathroom while trans is complicated by a history of gender policing and cissexist notions about who deserves to use public spaces. This workshop investigates the history of gendered bathrooms, the cultural narratives maintaining them today, and the machinations behind anti-trans bathroom bills -- then turns to discussion about queer dreams of an ideal place to do your business.
Content Warning: transphobia, racism, cissexism
