HERE’S A PREVIEW OF AVAILABLE KEYNOTES / WORKSHOPS / LECTURES aka stuff I love to talk about…
Race + Gender/Sexuality, Intersectionally – In this workshop, participants will deeply investigate how their multiple identities operate in this 2018 world, specifically looking at the intersection of race and sexuality/gender. AC Dumlao will give a crash course on Kimberlé Crenshaw’s analytic framework of intersectionality, share their experience of being queer/trans/Asian/and more, as well as lead self-reflective exercises and guided discussion on topics at hand.
Call Them By Their Name – Headlines such as National Geographic’s “Gender Revolution,” may lead you to believe that the concepts of gender fluidity and non-binary identity are a new invention by millennials and Gen X, when in fact, non-binary identities have always existed. During this lecture, advocate and educator AC Dumlao (they/them) will discuss the history of non-binary genders in cultures around the world and how “non-binary” fits with(in) the transgender community.
BROWN/ROUND/QUEER/HERE – AC is queer but not white. Cis-assumed but trans. Trans but non-binary. American but Filipino. Asian but Brown. The buts keep on coming. A talk/keynote/lecture/discussion about intersectionality and queerness, tailored to the topics you’re interested in!
These are just a few examples of topics we can explore. And this doesn’t just have to just be in-person either! I LOVE skype presentations, appearing on podcasts, and giving e-mail interviews.
Have a script? Screenplay? Mock trial topic? I am also available to consult on any projects you are working on that could benefit from my perspectives.
If you’ve seen me write about it or talk about it online, we can make it happen. Want to talk about… Pop Culture, Pop Music, Fashion as Self-Care, Asian-American Identity, Erasure of Brown Asians in the Media, Theatre/Casting, Intersectionality in [You Pick!]… Let’s collaborate!
