Redefining Realness Book Discussion Group

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More

by Janet Mock

In her first book, "Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More," Janet Mock invites the reader into her world and experiences as a transgender woman of color. Mock offers her readers a platform from which to begin their personal interrogation of gender, sex, sexuality and its myriad of intersections using popular culture and musings from literary heroes as conversational bookends. As more transgender, gender nonconforming, and nonbinary students emerge on college campuses, faculty and staff need to be prepared to develop and sustain inclusive pedagogical practices that support some of the most vulnerable member of their community.

Conveners: Danny Mathews, GSC Director, and Rae Horton, GSC Associate Director
