L. Nichols, a trans man, artist, engineer and father of two, was born in rural Louisiana, assigned female and raised by conservative Christians. Flocks is his memoir of that childhood, and of his family, friends and community, the flocks of Flocks, that shaped and re-shaped him. L.’s irresistibly charming drawings demonstrate what makes Flocks so special: L.’s boundless empathy.
The event is presented by the MIT Arts Scholars, the Council for the Arts at MIT, and WGS. Nichols was an Arts Scholar while at MIT and is an Associate Member of the Council for the Arts at MIT.
