We're adding two more amazing presenters to this already phenomenal line-up at the upcoming Butch Voices Conference.
Joining Cheryl Dunye, Campbell, and Kortney Ryan Ziegler for the Is That Me on TV? session are: Kimberly Peirce and Jack Halberstam. Kimberly is best known as the award-winning writer/director of the films, Boys Don't Cry and Stop-Loss. She's also familiar navigating the business and media world as a self-identified butch. Jack is a professor of English and Gender Studies at USC, and also known for the books Female Masculinity, In a Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives, as well as co-authoring with Del LaGrace Volcano for The Drag King Book.
We are incredibly excited about the potential for this panel session on the images of Studs and Butches in the media, as well as the newly added session: Boys Don't Cry and Beyond: A Conversation Between Jack Halberstam and Kim Pierce. Details on this session and the revised conference schedule will be available on the website very soon.
Is That Me on TV? is scheduled for Friday August 21st, and Boys Don't Cry and Beyond is scheduled for Saturday August 22nd.
