Gender Non-Conforming Research

Are you a Gender Non-Conformist?

As a gender non-conformist I am exploring how the binary identities of woman and man don't really fit - and I need your help. Everyone constantly navigates gender expectations and socially acceptable stereotypes - but genderqueer, transgender, and other gender non-conforming people are especially aware of, and have to deal with, the impact of gender in everyday life. I am especially interested in how gender is disrupted and perpetuated through everyday interactions.

For my dissertation at UC Davis I am conducting interviews about gendered experiences and also accompanying gender non-conforming people to observe their conversations and interactions with others. I would be interested in interviewing you and, if you feel comfortable, watching how others interact with you in your daily life. I offer genuine interest in your life experiences. Together we can explore how the gender binary operates and how it can be challenged.

To participate or if you have questions, please contact: Jaime Becker at or by phone 908-892-5849. Jaime will be in the Twin Cities in late September 2010.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested.

The Butch Project

The Butch Project was created by in March 2010 because butches need to connect. We need to share stories. We need to create an anthology, develop a community, and present a source of inspiration for those queer women in a new generation who are facing discouragement as butches. We need to expand and integrate our stories so that one day this anthology, this project, will serve to give a better understanding of the "butch" community.
