Nevo Zisin is a young activist, student, writer and public speaker with a particular focus on issues surrounding gender, sex and sexuality. Assigned female at birth, Nevo has had a complex relationship with gender, transitioning to present as male at the age of 17, undergoing different medical interventions and now identifying outside of a female/male gender binary. They work particularly with children as a youth leader and through running programs and workshops in schools. They are also a contact point in the Jewish community for other children and families confronting issues of gender and sexuality in their own lives.
Nevo will be signing copies of their autobiography Finding Nevo, which will be available to purchase on the night thanks to Fullers bookshop.
Nevo will be in conversation with researcher/writer/film maker Dr Son Vivienne from RMIT’s Creative Agency and Digital Ethnography Research Centre.
