Tiq Milan: Redefining Black Masculinity: A Transgender Experience

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Hallock Auditorium, Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies 122 Elm Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Masculinity is as performative as any other gender. It is fluid, expansive and belongs to anyone who embodies it. Tiq is a transgender man who has experienced gender on many different points across the spectrum. These experiences have shaped his approach to creating his own masculinity and allowed him to interrogate the toxic notions that are attached to being a man in the world.

In this presentation Tiq shares stories of his journey of becoming a man and what he's learned about the masculine experience and binary gender. He also looks at how race intersects with how we define gender.
