#GIDYVR: Gender Identity and Kids

May 9, 2019: Croatian Cultural Centre Auditorium, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m.

This is the second event in the #GIDYVR Still Talking Series, featuring Meghan Murphy, Dagny, and Dr. Kenneth Zucker.

Murphy is perhaps Canada’s most well-known feminist: she’s the founder and editor of Feminist Current and is currently suing Twitter, after she was permanently suspended from the site for speaking unpopular truths and for ideological reasons. She holds a Masters degree in women’s studies and is known for her cultural critiques of gender ideology, prostitution, and pornography.

Dagny is one of four founders of the Pique Resilience Project, an initiative created to spread awareness of detransition. From the age of 15 to 19 she identified as non-binary and as a trans man. She is now 22-years-old and currently lives in the mountainous west with her partner, Alexandra, and puts most of her free-time into art, writing, and true crime.

Dr. Kenneth Zucker is a Canadian-American psychologist and sexologist. He ran the Gender Identity Service for children and adolescents at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto until 2015, when a smear campaign by trans activists pressured the clinic to force him from his role. Zucker has since received an apology and settlement, as the claims that led to his dismissal were false. He has worked with gender dysphoric children -- and collected research on transition and desistance rates, among other things -- over 40 years.

At the end of 2017, the CBC cancelled a scheduled airing of BBC documentary, Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best?, which featured Zucker’s work. Again, this was due to pressure from trans activists who deemed the documentary “transphobic.”
