Continuing the posts about our headline speakers for the 2016 National Festival of LGBT History, we have a key figure in the UK’s trans community.
Sarah Savage was one of the stars of the TV series, My Transsexual Summer, which was instrumental in paving the way for broad acceptance of trans people in British society.
Since then Sarah has gone on to become one of the founders of Brighton’s Trans Pride, an event that has grown exponentially over the first few years of its life.
Last year Sarah co-wrote a children’s book, Are You A Boy or Are You A Girl?. This tells the story of Tiny, a young person whose gender is never mentioned, and who feels free to play in all sorts of ways, free of gender stereotypes.
Sarah will be speaking as part of the full day of events at M Shed on Saturday Feb. 20th.
