Gendercator Screening & Panel Discussion

On 11/21/2007, Chicago filmmaker Catherine Crouch attended the local premiere of her controversial short film, The Gendercator, a futuristic look at forced gender roles. The 15-minute film, shown at Center on Halsted as part of the Reeling annual LGBT film fest, was followed by more than an hour of debate and discussion with a panel of experts on gender issues, as well as comments by Crouch about her intentions behind the project. Panelists included Jackie Anderson, Catherine Crouch, Ronnie Drantz, Judith Halberstam, Kate Kane and Casey Schwartz.

Ronnie Drantz refuted the simplistic biblical binary sexual system with a scientific update including the biology of sexual identity and sexual orientation.
