The Revolutionary Spectrum by Siv Greyson


From a very young age, Siv struggled to fit within the ideal version of girlhood, thus lived in constant resistance of gendered social norms – Today, Siv lives happily as a non-binary person feeling less pressured to perform a femininity that was never theirs.YouTuber, writer and a black queer student activist – will share their experience and views about “The Revolutionary Spectrum.”With Twitter as their biggest teacher, YouTube as their largest outlet, and all of social media to explore, Siv uses their social media presence – as well as their strong presence in the Cape Townian and Port Elizabethan young queer scenes – to challenge constructed ideas on gender (and race).

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
