1 show for this event

A guidebook, the result of a team effort, that collects articles, stories, and explanations, related to gender and identity issues: the struggle for rights, the pink/blue binarism of gender marketing, the debate over the proper terminology to respect each individual, and more. A book that presents information clearly and accurately, allowing the reader to learn more about gender without forgetting to start from the basics. Questioni di un certo genere is the second issue of a series called Cose spiegate bene, an editorial project by Il Post and Iperborea, which in this volume features contributions from Arianna Cavallo, Fumettibrutti, Vera Gheno, Gianmarco Negri, Diego Passoni, Massimo Prearo, and Il Post’s editorial staff.

LIS interpreter will be present at the presentation
