Civic Life Lunch – True Identity: Intersex Activism and the Politics of Gender
Monday, September 30 | 12 PM | Rabb Room, Tisch College
Tatenda Ngwaru is a Zimbabwean intersex activist and asylum seeker now based in Boston. She is the founder of True Identity, the first intersex organization in Zimbabwe that promoted community awareness of intersex issues and advocated for the dignity, rights, and well-being of the LGBTQI community. In addition to writing for Shondaland, The Huffington Post, Vogue, and The Root, Ngwaru is also the subject of the documentary She’s Not a Boy, which earlier this year was an official selection at Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival.
This event is sponsored by Tisch College, the Africana Center, the Women’s Center, and the LGBT Center. Lunch will be provided.
