A rainbow gradient infinity symbol is intertwined with a transgender symbol (an symbol formed by joining a male/mars, female/venus, and a combination of the two at the circle.)Our Executive Director, Cori Frazer, will be running a workshop entitled "Neuroqueer: A Paradigm for the Rest of Us," on September 18, 2016 at 12:05PM at the Persad Center for the TransPride Pittsburgh 2016 National Conference. Neuroqueer is an identity, a verb, a way of interacting with the world.What happens when queer theory and the neurodiversity paradigm come together to create a new conception of what it means to have a different kind of brain in a world that conditions to act indistinguishably from our neurotypical peers? How do we apply ivory tower ideas and cultural artifacts to our own lives to enrich the way we live every day? What does a world where we engage with neuronormativity in the same ways we engage with hetero- and cisnormativity look like? Cori will engage with these questions as they introduce the audience to new way of thinking about the intersection of queerness and neurodivergence. This event will be a short presentation followed by a guided discussion.

You can register for the conference here. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
