gender across communities
I’m a librarian, so I went to books first, and then to databases full of articles. But gender is a living thing, so I went right to the source, interviewing over 200 people.
I asked people how they experience gender, today, in their communities.
The answers were as unique as the individuals surveyed, spanning quite a few ethnic, social, racial, and religious backgrounds. Take a look!
ed note: the intention of this page was to directly quote the communities we are attempting to represent, a well as showcase the great living diversity of gender.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Lawndale last night!
We had a great time and got a lot of really valuable community feedback.
