Seattle's Gender Odyssey conference launches

by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Gender Odyssey
Hyatt at Olive 8
September 5-7


When was the last time you had to answer the question "what are you?" or "what do you consider yourself?" or felt the need to let others know you wanted the gender question retired when it came to how they addressed you or someone you love? If this and other gender-Queer questioning is something you've been looking at lately, or for a long time, your event is here this weekend in the annual Gender Odyssey conference.

This year's event promises something for everyone, and though it's being held at the Hyatt at Olive 8 in downtown Seattle instead of the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, there will still be a number of interesting workshops and meet and greet events for gender-Queer folk. There will also be the annual meet and greet for Gender Odyssey attendees and guest at Kaladi Brothers Coffee at 511 E. Pike Street on Saturday evening, September 5. Last year's event was great fun, with tons of treats to eat and much camaraderie, so do drop by.

Another highlight this year is a one-man show called Transgressing Gender in the Bible, performed by international performance artist Peter Toscano, dealing with characters in the Bible and looking at their gender differences. And there are health screenings offered by Gay City and the YWCA for attendees to get checkups in a gender-variant atmosphere instead of the usual gender-binary environment of most hospitals and some clinics.
