Trans Like Me - With CN Lester

Saturday 27 May
Literature Tent, Chapelfield Gardens
11.30am - 12.30pm
£8 / £80 weekend ticket

We are all defined by ideas of gender, whether we live our lives as he, she or they. In Trans Like Me, academic and trans-activist CN Lester addresses the most pressing questions in the transgender debate and combines it with a charged personal narrative of what it means to be a transgender person today. They cover hotly contested topics such as the rise in referrals for gender variant children, feminism's treatment of the trans community, and the mainstream media's 'trans moment', among much more.

Lester has acted as a consultant on trans issues for a range of organisations including Channel 4, the BBC and the Huffington Post, and co-founded the first ever national UK group for young LGBT people.
