Being Trans

What is it? Being Trans

When is it? Friday 30th July from 2pm – 2:30pm

Where is it? On Youtube. Book on Eventbrite.

How is it? Pretty good, thanks for asking!

How would you feel if your very existence was being debated, ridiculed and judged everyday? Not just by the expected crowds, but people who you love and share community with?

This is how gender queer, non-binary and trans people feel. Even within the LGBTQIA+ community there is so much misunderstanding and exclusion towards trans people. 

In this episode, we delve into those opinions, how we can better educate people on the trans experience, what it truly means to be marginalised and how we can build safer, more inclusive communities – one conversation at a time. With Comics Youth, Liverpool and Trans activist and visionary, Charlie Craggs.
