Regardless of its gender, the world is transitionning: cultures, ecosystems, economies are changing rapidly, locally and globally. Our gender identities (trans, cis, other) and their transformations are expressions of and reactions to the many contexts in which they happen. Using intersectionality to understand the way they are constructed, we will question the realities that shape our genders, their ressemblance and difference, and question what we express through them, politically, erotically. How do we resist or embrace the transition of the world itself?
