Presentation at K College
Presentation at WMU
Ochs has taught courses on LBGT history and politics in the United States, the politics of sexual orientation, and the experiences of those who overstep such binary categories as gay/straight, masculine/feminine, black/white and male/female.
Her writings have been published in numerous anthologies, and she is the editor of the "Bisexual Resource Guide." Ochs also co-edited the second edition of "Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World," a new 42-country anthology containing 220 essays that explore bisexual identity.
Her Kalamazoo visit is being sponsored by Kalamazoo College, the Kalamazoo Gay Lesbian Resource Center, and WMU's Gender and Women's Studies Program and Office of LBGT Student Services.
