Gabby Gathering - Revolutionary
Revolutionary, tells the story of Alex Myers’ ancestor, Deborah Sampson, who disguised herself as a man and fought in the American Revolutionary War - he related to it his own experience as a transgender person. Alex Myers is a writer, teacher, speaker, and activist. Since high school, Alex has campaigned for transgender rights. As a female-to-male transgender person, Alex began his transition at Phillips Exeter Academy and was the first transgender student in that academy’s history. Alex was also the first openly transgender student at Harvard and worked to change the university’s nondiscrimination clause to include gender identity. Since then, Alex has worked with schools and colleges to educate students, faculty, and administrators about gender identity. He has assisted dozens of schools as they redesign facilities, practices, and policies to be more gender inclusive.
