Trans Rights - Reframing the Conversation: a talk by CN Lester

  • The Attic at The Railway Inn 3 Saint Paul's Hill Winchester, England, SO22 5AE United Kingdom (map)

Trans rights are headline news at the moment - but does the conversation playing out in the press have anything to do with what trans people are actually saying? GRA reform to trans teens, feminist inclusion to film representation: author and activist CN Lester discusses how we can ground our conversations in fact, empathy, and the expectation of better things.

CN Lester is an academic, writer, musician, and leading LGBTI activist. Co-founder of the UK's first national queer youth organisation, they curate the trans art event Transpose for The Barbican, and work internationally as a trans and feminist educator and speaker. Their work has featured on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, SBS, The Guardian, ABC, The Independent, Newsnight, New Internationalist, and The Toast. Their book Trans Like Me (Virago) is out now.

In this talk CN breaks down myths, discusses gender diversity and making a more inclusive future a reality.

45-minute talk, followed by opportunity for audience discussion.
