‘Y’all Better Quiet Down: Trans Advocacy, Justice & Safety’

The Speed Art Museum is currently exhibiting “Breaking the Mold: Investigating Gender.” As part of its programming, it is presenting “Dialogues on Gender.” The three talks will be led by the hosts of WFPL’s “Strange Fruit” podcast — Kaila Story, associate professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at UofL, and Jaison Gardner. The first presentation is “Y’all Better Quiet Down: Trans Advocacy, Justice & Safety.” The title is a statement LGBTQ activist Sylvia Rivera said at the Christopher Street Liberation Day Rally in New York City in 1973. It will feature Louisville Metro Human Relations Commissioner Dawn Wilson and DJ Victoria Syimone Taylor. July’s talk is “Living a Feminist Life Through Art, Education, & the Media,” with “It Do Take Nerve: Drag as a Subversive Tool of Resistance” in August.
