The days of two genders—male, female; boy, girl; blue, pink—are over, if they ever existed at all. Gender is now a global conversation, and one that is constantly evolving.
KFPL is pleased to announce the inauguration of our Constellations lecture and demonstration series with the Kingston/Katarokwi paperback launch of Dr. Lee Airton's Gender: Your Guide. Airton is an Author and Assistant Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies in Education at Queen’s University. Their gender-friendly guide to gender diversity empowers readers with the skills we need to “welcome all of the ways that people do gender.” The work has been called "a must-have for everyone" (Washington Post), "a warm, inviting guide to a complicated area" (Globe and Mail), and "an invaluable resource for both new and veteran allies" (Library Journal).
On Monday, November 11, Airton will be at KFPL’s Central branch from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm to read from their work, discuss its contents, and field questions from the audience.
