A presentation from 2023–2024 William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Fellow Jules Gill-Peterson

At Radcliffe, Gill-Peterson is working on her book project, “Gender Underground: A Trans History of DIY,” which reimagines post-WWII American trans history through the lens of do-it-yourself (DIY) transition and mutual-aid practices. As a vernacular medical and scientific science, trans people’s endeavors to survive and flourish without the sanction of the state, law, or institutional medicine are an overlooked body of expertise and practice, urgent in an era where anti-trans and antiabortion projects have disassembled the right to privacy and bodily autonomy.
