Madden

[tab title=”Details”]

Like many late-stage trans women, Scottie Jeanette Madden didn’t seem to have any difficulty being a man. Beloved as husband, son, brother, and uncle by her family and well-respected as an adventure survival filmmaker, everything in her life screamed alpha male. In Getting Back to Me: from girl to boy to woman, Madden recounts her journey of love, acceptance, and honesty. In conversation with Seattle-based sex, gender, and relationships educator, Status Causey, the Maddens will discuss their experience as Scottie shook off 50 years of expectations from family, society, and self and worked to “dismantle the walls of her self-imposed prison.” This articulate and unflinching perspective sheds new light on the transgender experience from both sides of their 27-year marriage. These two women share the inspiring story of their enduring love as they redefine themselves as a new kind of family.

Event attendees are invited to stick around for a post-event reception and book-signing event with Scottie to kick off Pride weekend celebrations.
