SOLD OUT Own Your Gender: Amrou Al-Kadhi, Travis Alabanza and Juno Roche
Thursday 24th October 2019
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Gower Street
'All those layers of expectation that are thrust upon us; boy, masculine, femme, transgender, sexual, woman, real, are such a weight to carry round. I feel transgressive. I feel hybrid. I feel trans.'
With her new book Trans Power, Juno Roche asks some of the most influential people from the LGBTQ+ community: ‘What does it mean to be trans?’Joining her to consider this question is Amrou Al-Kadhi, whose new memoir Unicorn: The Memoir of a Muslim Drag Queen explores how sexual and gender nonconformity can be policed and shaped by intersections across culture, faith, family, and even marine biology and Quantum Physics.
Their conversation will be chaired by Travis Alabanza, performance artist, theatre maker, poet and writer. Tackling everything from sex and desire, through to race, class and privilege, the conversation will confront not just the diversity of trans experiences, but their humanity. At a time when trans people’s very existence is debated and rejected, these stories need to be heard.
