THIRD THURSDAY: Trans Psychology

CQA’s political/activism event is right around the corner folks, and this one, you don’t want to miss!

Come discuss with the pretty people of CQA whether “gender identity disorder” should be included in the Diagnostic and Statistics manual for Mental Health. For many, inclusion of the term in the DSM means insured treatment for hormone therapy and surgery. For others, it means the pathologizing of a gender identity, and a blatant form of discrimination.

Our panelists, Dr. Meyer-Balhburg, a psychologists and one of the reviewers of DSM, Dru Levasseur, an attorney from Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, and Katie Douglass, from the Callen-Lorde transgender clinic, will analyze how this understanding of “transgender” both helps, and hurts, the transgender community.

Don’t miss out! The event is taking place in Fayerweather 313, at 7:00 pm.
