Lessons from Trans Movements for Liberation - Imagining Transgender Futures

With guest speaker Myrl Beam.
Myrl Beam is the Assistant Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, currently on Scholarly Leave from 2019-2021 while he serves as the Oral History Fellow at the Tretter Trans Oral History Project, a program of the Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies at the University of Minnesota Andersen Special Collection Library.

Beam’s work focuses on queer and trans movements, racialized projects of inclusion and normativity, and the affective economies of neoliberal capitalism.

He is the author of Gay, Inc.: The Nonprofitization of Queer Politics (University of Minnesota Press, 2018). Click HERE to see the book.

Beam also co-hosts, with writer and activist Andrea Jenkins, the podcast Transcripts (Click HERE for the podcast), which shares the stories collected by the Tretter Trans Oral History Project with a wider audience.

In addition to his scholarly work, Beam is active in queer and trans left movements, specifically around issues of prison abolition, homelessness, and supporting the leadership of trans youth in movements for justice.

No need to read the book or listen to the podcast in order to participate
