Joss Greene received his B.A. from Scripps College with a dual major in History and Gender & Women's Studies. His most exciting intellectual work has arisen at the synthesis of his political, creative, academic interests. In his undergraduate years, these projects included examining the racialized citizenship discourses circulating around people with HIV/AIDS and exploring the erasure of race and class differences in the positioning of transgender students as a threat to "shared womanhood" at women's colleges. After graduating college, Joss began working at a San Francisco high school, performed a new dance piece about privilege and representation of trans experience, and deepened his commitment to grassroots queer politics.
