About the Event
Join us for the online launch of the TransBareAll anthology of new writing and art! We are delighted to welcome some of the featured artists and writers, as well as the editorial team, who will share some of the creative process and the gorgeous result.
After the readings and conversation, we will keep the zoom room open for an additional hour until 9.30pm so you can socialise, chat, and hang out with a glass of your household's finest.
What to expect:
Against the roar of destructive noise, the minds behind TransBareAll decided to mark ten years of work by speaking for themselves, on their own terms, at a time when trans voices are rarely allowed to be heard.
The result - this book! - is a collective endeavour of words and artwork. The contributors within followed the path dug by the few trans writers who are now starting to get some recognition, and took inspiration from the knowledge that within the trans community there is a huge wellspring of talent, knowledge and experience. The result is something quite extraordinary.
Within these pages you will find faith, and passion, and struggle. You will find anger and you will find laughter. You will find strategies for surviving a racist misogynist world. Strategies for navigating parenthood. You will find sex (because this is not a children’s book) and reckoning. You will find mountains and moorland, a cigarette scraped across the wall of a pub and a size 9 stiletto. You will find pieces of Lego that make sense of the world and a haircut at the best barbershop in London. Most importantly, you will find a range of experiences and a wealth of trans voices, each different, speaking loud, and proud, and together.
Access info and what to bring:
There will be a 15 minute break mid-way.
Please bring a drink of your choice, and, as we have the mute function, feel free to bring as many noisy snacks as you wish!
Zoom ettiquette and security:
All guests will be muted on entry and only registered guests will be able to enter.
Please feel free to turn your camera off if you wish.
Please use the same name as you did at registration, or you will not be permitted to enter. This is to prevent zoom-bombing.
This is a space for celebration and community. Any displays of racism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, sexism, or other bigoted stance will not be tolerated and will result in being immediately removed from the room.
