Abstract

Transgendering takes place within four major modes: those of 'migrating', 'oscillating', 'negating' and 'transcending' (Ekins and King, 2006). Arguably, recent UK legislation, for instance, has gone a long way to 'respectabilise' gender migration, e.g. 'transsexuals'. Tolerance of 'gender oscillating', e.g. cross-dressing/transvestism, has increased markedly in recent years. Contemporary cultural theory celebrates this who argue for a 'transcending' of the binary divide. Largely ignored, in both theory and practice, are those who gender 'negate', who seek to become 'ungendered'.

This talk considers the life and work of UK pioneer of ungendering - Christie Elan-Cane from the standpoint of per ungendering identity, the ungendering 'community', and of ungendering activism.
