GenderQueer/QueerGenders is a multidiscplinary, multimedia conference February 11-13, 2005. It will be a forum for people who’ve been thinking about queerness and gender from different places (institutions, geographic locations, identities) and through different means (performance, scholarship, organizing, cultural politics, etc). The conference will bring together artists, scholars and activists as equal contributors to conduct workshops, exhibit and perform art, and present academic research. A priority of this conference is to reflect the diversity and complexity of gender expressions and the meanings gender has in different racial and cultural locations.

At the Saturday Performance Plenary, Fresh Meat Productions presents Artistic Director Sean Dorsey’s choreography. “Second Kiss” is an honest, humorous portrait of a 4th grade genderqueer’s adrenaline-filled plunge into first love … revealing that inner truth doesn’t always match schoolyard politics. Performed by Sean Dorsey and Mair Culbreth.
