Hello, I’m Heath Fogg Davis: a scholar-activist whose work in classrooms, boardrooms, community centers, and media seeks to alleviate discrimination and inequality. I am an educator and advocate for marginalized communities, inspiring and training people in the art of institutional change.
Do we need male and female signs on bathroom doors? Should schools, businesses, and non-profits ask us to check gender boxes on bureaucratic forms? Why does the government need to keep track of our gender identities? My book Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter? (NYU Press, 2017) provides practical strategies to help organizations of all kinds and sizes design and implement gender policies that are both trans-inclusive and institutionally smart.
