Race & Intersectionality in Trans Communities: Discussion & Film Showing

Friday, 20 February 2015 - 6:00am to 9:00pm

For LGBT History month, GI is hosting an evening of discussion, film and performance to highlight and celebrate inspirational black, Asian and ethnic minority trans people in the UK and abroad. Trans people of colour continue to be sidelined in the wider trans community. The evening will include a series of talks from activists and members of LGBT organisations about the intersectionality of race and ethnicity in trans communities.

Come along to listen and contribute to engaging discussion, watch some amazing films from trans history and enjoy some free drinks and snacks. The discussion will be faciliated by our trans youth sessional workers – Lynette Goddard and Sabah Choudrey. Dr. Lynette Goddard is a university lecturer, specialising in black drama and theatre and Sabah Choudrey is a youth worker at All Sorts in Brighton and one of the organisers for Trans Pride.

Any donations will go towards supporting our BAME Youth Group which started in September. We want to get the word out about the youth group to make sure that as many young people as possible can make use of it.

All are welcome. Travel bursaries are available for any GI youth group members who attend. It will be an alcohol-free space. Free drinks and snacks will be served.
