Transgender in New York: A Nineteenth-Century Story
From anti-bullying campaigns to discriminatory school bathroom bills, today's debates about transgender rights and inclusion frequently center on issues affecting transgender youth. While the media attention to these issues might be recent, in fact, transgender youngsters in New York have asserted their identities and fought for inclusion for over 150 years.
Jesse Bayker, Mellon Predoctoral Fellow at the Museum of the City of New York, will discuss his research on nineteenth-century transgender lives and share resources for bringing transgender stories into your classroom.
This event is geared towards educators but open to all with interest in the topic.
Educators will learn about sources in the exhibition New York at Its Core available to support their students' learning in the Museum and online. Participants will leave with resources for the classroom and a CTLE certificate for 1.5 hours of professional development.
Light refreshments will be served.
Venue: Museum of the City of New York
