The 'Progress' pride flag comprising the six colours of the original plus white/pink/light blue representing trans people and brown and black for people of colour.The Roman world had, in some ways, far more gender diversity in it than we have today. Also, Romans firmly believed that people could change sex if the gods willed it so.

Cheryl Morgan’s exciting and thought-provoking talk, suitable for all audiences, will cover a variety of trans and intersex characters from the Roman world. We’ll meet the Emperor who wanted to be a woman, the Empress who grew up as a boy, the genius intersex philosopher, eunuchs who grew up as girls and many others, some of whom lived here in the Province of Britannia.
