Gendercast Episode 13:  Reflections on Gender Odyssey

Join Jessie and Sean as they discuss their disparate experiences of the Gender Odyssey conference in the context of the new genderqueer track juxtaposed against FTM orientations.  We will reflect on our experience of Chaz Bono's workshop Q&A session as well as Dean Spade's keynote address, which left us in awe and inspired.  We will mention briefly various workshops we attended.
