Charlie Craggs in conversation

Tuesday 3rd July 18:00 - 20:00 at Manchester - Deansgate

Edited by one of the leading trans activists of her generation, these empowering and heartfelt letters will be a source of sisterly advice for the next wave of girls beginning their transition. Trans women at the very top of their games and from all walks of life share their incredible stories of resilience and success.

From dealing with 5 o’clock shadow to battling transphobia, from sex and dating tips to managing mental health, these letters don’t shy away from the tough realities of transitioning, but provide practical and emotional guidance.

With contributions from politicians, scientists, models, athletes, authors, musicians, religious leaders, beauty queens and straight-up trans icons, and from famous names like Juno Dawson, Isis King, Rhiannon Styles, Laura Jane Grace and Juliet Jacques, this book proves that trans women can be whoever they want to be and you can too, sis.
