This live event, brought to you by Town Hall Seattle, celebrates the publication of Transparent creator Jill Soloway’s explosive new book, SHE WANTS IT: Desire Power and Toppling the Patriarchy. Soloway is joined for a raucous conversation by Morgan Parker, the award-winning author of the upcoming Magical Negro, plus Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby, creator of Nanette and presenter at the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards, and a few other surprise guests as well. The special guests will take part in bringing to fruition Jill’s dream of creating a spectator sport around the dynamic of feminist arguing. Jill and their interlocutors weave together an evening of conversation that mirrors the book’s passionate cri de coeur, with comedy and incendiary patriarchy-toppling concepts.
Soloway and their story are uniquely positioned at the center of the current gender and consent conflagrations to offer new perspectives on dated and damaging “he said/she said” dynamics. Jill’s recent transition from identifying as femme, female, and straight to queer, masculine-of-center, and nonbinary brings a vital new perspective and radical feminist philosophy to this pivotal moment. Join Jill Soloway, along with Parker, Gadsby, and other guests, for an instigating and participatory forum for thought leaders and audience alike to engage with the front lines of our understanding of gender, power, desire, and consent.
