Julia Serano, the innovative trans-feminist activist, biologist and author of “Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity,” presented a lecture Friday, April 24 titled, “Trans-Feminism: A Performance and Discussions.” The lecture was sponsored by GLOW, and offered a trans-feminist critique on the socialization of gender and sexuality.

Serano holds a doctorate in biochemistry and molecular biophysics from Columbia University and is currently a researcher at UC-Berkeley in the field of evolutionary and developmental biology. When Serano is not involved in academia, she is a voice against trans-discrimination and a revolutionary theorist, who exposes the intersecting forces responsible for trans-phobia.
