Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are rescheduling Jacob Tobia’s author talk for later in the month. We will announce the new date shortly, but we are currently looking at the range of April 20th-23rd, so please keep your calendars marked! Looking forward to seeing you there!
Please join Randall Library, the Mohin-Scholz LGBTQIA Resource Office, and the UNCW Gender Studies Resource Center for a conversation with Jacob Tobia (they/them), actor, writer, producer, and author of the national bestselling memoir Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story.
From running across the Brooklyn Bridge in high heels to giving Trevor Noah an on-air makeover on The Daily Show, Jacob helps others embrace the full complexity of their gender, even (and especially) when it’s messy as hell. In addition to adapting their book Sissy into a forthcoming TV series for Showtime, Jacob recently made their acting debut as the nonbinary character “Double Trouble” on Netflix’s She-Ra and The Princesses of Power. Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Jacob currently lives in Los Angeles.

Jacob will be sharing a passage from their memoir, talking gender identity and celebration, and answering audience questions.
