TRANSGENDERED ALUMNUS TO LEAD WORKSHOP

Most of Bryn Mawr's male graduates are alumni of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, but there's at least one man among the alumnae of the undergraduate college. Transgender advocate Daniel Soltis '98 will return to the Bryn Mawr campus this Sunday, April 18, to conduct a workshop on issues facing transgender individuals and communities.

As a recent story in The New York Times indicates, students who identify
themselves as transgender are becoming increasingly visible on college
campuses around the nation. Soltis' presentation, says Rainbow Alliance
President Kathryn McMahon, aims to introduce some basic terms and concepts used to discuss gender identity and expression, and to teach participants how to be supportive allies to transgender individuals and communities.

"Daniel will talk about how transgender issues affect college and universities in general and women's colleges in particular," says McMahon. "He'll probably discuss his own experience at Bryn Mawr as well."

The presentation, sponsored by Rainbow Alliance, the Women's Center, One World, Batten House, and the Feminist and Gender Studies Program, will be held in the Multicultural Center from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and is open to all members of the Bryn Mawr College community. Pizza will be provided.
