(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue @ Green Space (Virtual) | New York | United States

Green Space is pleased to present the new virtual program “(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue.” The series brings together BIPOC choreographers who have shown work in Green Space’s programming series: Fertile Ground, Take Root, and Green Space Blooms throughout our 15-year history.

Once A Girl, Always A Boy: A Family Memoir of a Transgender Journey @ virtual
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm
Once A Girl, Always A Boy: A Family Memoir of a Transgender Journey @ virtual

Award-winning author and LGBTQ & Civil Rights Advocate Jo Ivester will speak on what it is like to have a transgender son in a world not quite ready for people like him. She is the author of Once a Girl, Always a Boy and The Outskirts of Hope and serves on the boards of Equality Texas, the Anti-Defamation League of Central Texas, and the Texas chapter of GLSEN. This virtual event is part of our Cultural Arts & Jewish Heritage Speaker Series.

Jeremy Ivester is a transgender man. Thirty years ago, his parents welcomed him into the world as their daughter. As a child, he preferred the toys and games our society views as masculine. Once a Girl, Always a Boy is Jeremy’s journey from childhood through coming out as transgender and eventually emerging as an advocate for the transgender community. This is not only Jeremy’s story but also that of his family, told from multiple perspectives―his own viewpoint and those of his siblings and of his parents.

Cost is $8 member / $10 non-member. Click here to register. For more information, please email KStrauss@CommonpointQueens.org.

A complete list of fall speakers is available at https://www.commonpointqueens.org/program/cultural-arts-and-jewish-heritage-events/.
