Social ramifications of gender non-conformance in Western cultures.
Isabella Restrepo graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2012 with a major in English and a minor in Feminist Studies. In her year off, Isabella worked on public outreach for Equality California, the largest and oldest LGBT lobbying organization in California. In this time, Isabella also worked for the Mayor of Los Angeles as the LGBT liaison intern. Her current research interests are the social ramifications of gender non-conforming individuals in Western cultures. Isabella hopes to eventually work with gender non-normative youth in the greater Los Angeles area.
