NYU Transgender Day of Visibility:
A Conversation Between Jodie Patterson and Tiq Milan

Thursday, March 28
6:30pm | 6:00pm Doors
Kimmel Center for University Life, Room 914
Facebook | RSVP 

Join the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation and the LGBTQ Student Center  for Transgender Day of Visibility as we host a conversation between activist Jodie Patterson to discuss her new memoir The Bold World with with content creator and trans advocate, Tiq Milan. In her memoir, Patterson explores identity, gender, race, and authenticity to tell the real-life story of her family’s history and transformation. Inspired by her transgender son Penelope, we learn about Patterson’s children who act as a vehicle for growth and acceptance of her diverse family, and her experiences as a wife, mother, and, eventually, LGBTQI advocate.

We will be selling copies of The Bold World which can be purchased via credit/debit card, and the event will be followed with a book signing by the author.

Space is limited, so please RSVP!

Open to the NYU and NYC community.
