Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity
Edited by Mattilda a.k.a. Matt Bernstein Sycamore

Tuesday, March 13 @ 8 p.m.
This Ain’t the Rosedale Library
483 Church St
Toronto, Ontario
(416) 929-9912
with Stacey May Fowles, Zoe Whittall and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarsinha

NOBODY PASSES starts by tearing binary gender norms to shreds, and then proceeds to examine the perilous intersections of identity, categorization, and community in order to challenge the very notion of belonging. Susan Stryker says it “gleefully demolishes the smug propriety that lurks within most contemporary debates about gender and diversity” and Naomi Zack says, “Nobody Passes is a fascinating example of how feminism and gender studies can support radically new identities that develop at the speed of life—or it may be part of the end of identity politics as known so far.”
