IN PERSON: We All Transition

Event Description

Navigating gender in our world has become more complicated. The simple binary gender system does not represent many in our communities today. In this talk, discuss the spectrum of gender in a warm and accessible way. Most of us were socialized around gender, and that socialization can limit us and affect the way we interact with others. Mac walks audiences through the types of modeling and messaging they had growing up around gender, and how we can all make conscious choices that serve us better today.

What is it like to see and walk in the world from both the male and female perspectives? Mac will share his gender journey and what it taught him about life, our culture, and how it affects our interactions with others.

Mac Scotty McGregor (he/him) is the co-founder and executive director of Positive Masculinity, a nonprofit that works to dismantle toxic masculinity cultural norms and create a healthier positive masculinity model for all people. On top of being an educator, trans activist, writer, speaker, radio host, and author of the book Positive Masculinity Now, McGregor is a former U.S. karate team member and Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee.

McGregor lives in Seattle.
