Gender: Kathryn Bond Stockton and Stella Rush

This week, on the Queer Power Hour, we’re considering the definition of gender — and how it’s changed over the years.

  • Out in the Bay talks with academic Kathryn Bond Stockton, who’s latest book is a primer on the evolving landscape of gender.
  • Making Gay History revisits an interview from 1987 with writer Stella Rush (aka Sten Russell), who dared to defy the stifling sex and gender conformity of the 1950s.
