Full House in Attendance for HRC’s First-Ever Equality Talk
April 24, 2012 by HRC staff
Post submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist
Developmental and clinical psychologist Diane Ehrensaft read passages from her recent book, Gender Born, Gender Made: Raising Healthy Gender-Nonconforming Children, and presented her model of the true gender self and the three-dimensional gender web.
A self-described “eternal optimist,” Dr. Ehrensaft also told personal anecdotes from her 25 years of work with gender non-conforming children and their families.
Dr. Ehrensaft currently serves as the Director of Mental Health at San Francisco’s Child and Adolescent Gender Center. During last night’s Q&A, she was joined onstage by Edgardo J. Menvielle, MD, of DC’s Children’s National Medical Center – the first U.S. center of its kind to address the needs of gender-nonconforming children.
Full video of this inaugural event is available at www.hrc.org/equalitytalks.
We hope you’ll be able to join us again in person or online for next month’s Equality Talk. Speakers will be announced shortly.
