“Changing Images of Trans People in Speculative Literature” Cheryl Morgan
Thursday 2nd February 2012, 7pm – 9pm
Hydra Books, 34 Old Market Street, Bristol BS2 0EZ. Free event.
The availability of magic and advanced science has allowed writers of fantasy and science fiction literature to explore issues of gender in their work. Hugo Award winning critic, Cheryl Morgan, explores how the way in which trans characters have been portrayed in speculative literature has changed as real trans people have become better known to the general public.
Cheryl Morgan is, to her knowledge, the only out trans person ever to have won science fiction’s highest honour, the Hugo Award. Born in Somerset, she has lived in Australia and California and now resides near Bath where she runs a small ebook publishing company and bookstore. She blogs regularly at www.cheryl-morgan.com.
This is a free event, but a donation to OutStories Bristol would be welcome.
