I am excited, that the xier pronouns I developed, are getting used more, and I am looking forward to any neo-pronoun widespread and recognized as singular they. Thanks to Goethe-Institut London and Oslo for quoting me, <3. My quote, white letters on green: 'I want a widespread gender neutral alternative to »sie« and »er«- beautiful or ugly, I don't care but something that fills the language gap and works within German grammar.'

Workshop : Nonbinary Gender Label Biographies Bern

I will participate a the Trans Congress in Bern with a workshop. On Sunday, the 8th of September at 3pm I will facilitate a workshop on sharing our experiences with gender labels. Choosing labels is often not easy for trans people that are not binary trans.

Nonbinary Gender Label Biographies

Finding gender labels that fit and dealing with wrong gender labels is especially hard for nonbinary trans people. This workshop is for all people on the trans spectrum that are not (only) trans men and trans women. You may call yourself nonbinary or not.

The workshop will provide a space for each to talk about how our gender labels changed and provide the opportunity to listen to each other. Finding gender labels that fits is not straight forward, but there is happiness in being seen and understood. The workshop will be held in English and the gender labels may be in any language.

Overview over all workshops.
