From the Boy Scouts reversing its policy of more than a century to accept transgender boys, to the Supreme Court declining to decide whether a transgender boy in Virginia could use the boys’ bathroom at his high school, transgender issues are front page news. Susan Stryker, in conversation with their dean, Malcolm Young, puts recent setbacks and progress in the pursuit of transgender equal rights in historical and cultural perspective.
Susan Stryker is a multiple award-winning author, editor and filmmaker whose credits include the Emmy-winning documentary Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria, the massive, two-volume Transgender Studies Reader, the introductory textbook Transgender History, and popular nonfiction works such as Queer Pulp: Perverse Passions from the Golden Age of the Paperback and Gay by the Bay: A History of Queer Culture in the San Francisco Bay Area.
