Stories on Gender

Join transgender artist, Drew Riley, as she takes you on a journey through gender. See the beautiful paintings of the Gender Portraits series that The Advocate calls, “nothing short of arresting.” Hear personal stories of the project’s transgender, intersex, and gender nonconforming subjects and Riley’s own personal experiences finding herself and living as an openly transgender woman. Learn about a world beyond the gender binary.

This one hour presentation includes beautiful visuals, engaging stories about the Gender Portraits subjects, insightful narratives from the artist's life, and an opportunity for questions and dialogue with the audience.

Motivational and optimistic…seek out Drew and Gender Portraits for your advocacy and visibility needs related to gender diversity.
