Author of the widely-known Female Masculinity and The Drag King Book, Judith will offer a map to the new terrain of gender, sexuality and pleasure in a post-marriage, post-feminist, post-heterosexual, post-gay world and considers popular culture during the 21st century from the world’s ‘first pregnant man’ to musical icon Lady Gaga.
