The "Trans Identity Panel 101" will be held on Zoom in lecture style with Q&A towards the end of the event. There will be 4 panelists, including Professor Karl Neubert, Juniper Alexander, Samuel Cormier, and Timothe Zakariyya.


The event would cover trans identity issues of transphobia, transmedicalism, transgender vocabulary and internet culture, along with what it means to be a transgender person in Japan and elsewhere. The talk would primarily be in an introductory level to accommodate those who are unfamiliar with the trans identity.


UPRIZINE was founded in 2017, aiming to create conversation and raise awareness surrounding intersectional issues at Temple University Japan through opinion pieces, creative writing, and occasionally, informative journalism. It is run by students and for students, through the TUJ Zine Club.
