This seminar will provide people with an understanding of different and diverse gender expressions, to allow attendants to think outside the box.

It will give people the opportunity to interact with each other in a whole different way, by breaking the walls of pre-conceived ideas.

Lesbian Conference - August 2006 PDF Print E-mail
Through contacts made within the JWG, Gender DynamiX was invited to the 2006 National Lesbian conference in Johannesburg at Constitutional Hill.  It was a landmark event in the South African LGBT calendar, for more than one reason. Not only was it after 10 years since the first lesbian conference, but also a much more diversely attended conference. The other reason for this event to be a landmark: right from the start it was such a Trans-inclusive space! Not one time, anybody made any “slips” when referring to the LBT womyn “movement” that was to be formed.

T - Junction - Ongoing PDF Print E-mail

Gender DynamiX initiated a social support group for people who are transgendered and their SOFFA's (Significant Others, Friends, Family and Allies). This group meets at least once a month and vary between social gatherings and topic discussions. Some of the activities includes: informal workshops, dvd evenings, topic discussions, bring and braai, going to restaurants together as a group, enjoying Kayla's band, beach parties, visiting the aquarium as a group and what not all. Currnetly (Aug 2006) the group has 20 members, and a few more people who are interested in joining.

One must realise, for some people it is a big step to make the decision to join a group like this. The understanding must be there that a group like this will always have a changing dynamic, as people come and go, according to their own needs.

T-junction is based in Cape Town. To find out more about the next meeting, contact liesl at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it


Book Fair - Feb 2006 PDF Print E-mail

It is summer, and raining in Cape Town - unheard of! It might have to be part of this whole global warming thing. I also believe it can be connected to the fact that not only for the first time Cape Town Pride festival had a poetry reading, book fair - something for the intellect on it's programme, but also because transgender folk was well presented!

Balancing Act exhibition - Feb 2006 PDF Print E-mail

This Valentine's Day join the Gay and Lesbian Archives and the Apartheid Museum for the launch of

Balancing Act: A new exhibition celebrating the 10th anniversary of South Africa's Constitution.

This exhibition collects a group of young lesbian, gay and transgender people whose account of their lives affirm their identities as sexually different. Some of the stories deal with pain, discrimination and ignorance. The Constitution has officially affirmed the equality and dignity of people of all sexual orientations. But widespread hostility means that lifestyles that are 'different' are hidden and not adequately represented in the public realm.

Radio talk on S.E.X. at Good Hope FM - Aug 2005 PDF Print E-mail

3 August, Gender DynamiX was invited by Dr Eve, to be one of the guests on her radio talk show, called S.E.X. on Good Hope FM.  Along with two other people we discussed the diverse topic of transgenderism.  One of the two people who joined, is a person who defines as a FTM and who is a T - Junction member. The other person fully embraces both the male and female genders within.  Part of the conversation was around the work of Gender DynamiX, and the other two people also had a chance to describe what they experience and are dealing with.  Dr Eve explained sexuality and thereafter there was time made for listeners to phone in and ask questions.  Some of the listeners directed questions to a specific guest, who then answered the question; alternatively, Dr Eve or I could answer and explain.  The aim of the talk was in general to provide information to  listeners, and also to create awareness.  This type of radio talk show and networking will be an ongoing project of Gender DynamiX.  More info about Dr Eve can be found at www.dreve.co.za
