I am is a professor of political science and women’s & gender studies at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. I also occasionally work as an adjunct professor for the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University. I’ve written widely on the topics related to transgender rights rights, sex reclassification policies, and feminism. With Susan Stryker, I was the founding editor of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly, the flagship journal of transgender studies. I co-edited, with Shannon Minter and Richard Juang, Transgender Rights, which won the Sylvia Rivera Award in Transgender Studies and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award. As a founding board member of the Transgender Law and Policy Institute I have advocated for transgender rights at all levels of government. I also serve on the board of directors Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE). My book, Sex is as Sex Does: Transgender Identity and the Politics of Classification, is forthcoming from New York University Press. With Lisa Jean Moore I wrote “‘We Won’t Know Who You Are’: Contesting Sex Designations on NYC Birth Certificates.” My BA is from Queen’s University, Canada, and my PhD is from Cornell University. Many of my articles can be downloaded from my Academia.edu page.
I also consult as a content editor for book projects related to GLBT studies, gender studies, and transgender studies.
