Because trans rights have only recently been talked about in public, many people assume that being trans is a modern invention, perhaps something invented by psychiatrists. However, gender-variant people have always been with us.
Cheryl Morgan takes us on a tour of some notable cases from history and makes the case for a rigid insistence on the binary nature of gender being a comparatively recent, Western, invention.
Free, but contributions to OutStories Bristol gladly received (suggested donation £3).
You can reserve your place for the talk via Eventbrite. But, you do not need to print the ticket as your registration is communicated electronically.
