"The Politics of Raising a Trans-Gender Child — Once a Girl, Always a Boy"

Jo Ivester, LGBTQ and civil rights advocate, will offer a look at what it is like to have a transgender son in a world not quite ready for people like him. Ivester describes her son’s experiences going back to early childhood when he first showed signs of being transgender. By sharing these stories, she aims to help her audience become more comfortable with transgender individuals and challenges them to recognize the discrimination this community faces. She attended classes at Reed College, completed undergraduate work in engineering at MIT, earned an MBA from Stanford, and now lives in Austin, Texas.
