Book & Author: Fairest: A Memoir   


Thursday, February 10, 6:30 pm (CST)   


In Meredith Talusan’s (she/they) reflective coming-of-age memoir Fairest, readers get a poignant look inside the mind and heart of one of the more accomplished LGBTQ+ journalists and authors in the business. Talusan, the first trans staff writer at Buzzfeed, the first trans person to hold an executive position at Condé Nast, the founding executive of Them, the recipient of numerous journalism awards, takes us to the beginning of her journey – as a Filipino boy, to white-passing gay man at Harvard, to becoming non-binary and a transgender woman.In Fairest, Talusan uses her life experiences as a case study to examine many of societies' issues with sexuality, gender, immigration, race, class, privileged opportunities, and the colonial mentality of colorism. 


Join us in conversation with Talusan as we explore her life journey, career as a LGBTQ+ journalist and author and address themes in the book.
