IIIT Hyderabad to host a talk show with Jessica Lynn, post operation, a transgender woman from California here in the city in KCIS Auditorium at its campus at Gachibowli on Tuesday, 12th September at 3.30pm.
The talk is scheduled keeping in view of IIIT-Hyderabad’s several mechanisms to monitor and improve gender relations in campus including gender sensitisation.
Jessica Lynn is on a world tour speaking at various colleges, universities across the world.
She will be speaking at IIIT Hyderabad on her life-altering experiences before and after transition. Jessica's lectures cover her transition, sex change, and assorted issues both legal and ethical involving gender identity, seen through her perspective as an intersectional advocate. Her style is an extremely open one, and leaves no topic off-limits. She is also very open to student questions and curiosities.
In the words of Vyjayanti Vasanta Mogli, a transgender activist in India, "Jessica’s talk would give students who may only have a mystic understanding of transgender people, through buzzwords and political jargon, a rare opportunity to learn from and speak with someone who has the ability to express the emotional, social and legal challenges faced by a transgender woman. This is a fantastic opportunity to dig into real subjects that are seldom discussed, with someone who is willing to share their complete story."
