I’m trans, and I’m also…
The media is full of discussions about what trans people are and are not.
With all of the misinformation and transphobia following the recent proposed reforms to the Gender Recognition Act, why not hear from some trans people in their own words about who they are.
We are excited to team up with Trans Pride South West to present this special online event for Bristol Pride Online. In a series of interviews and videos, we’ll be covering topics ranging from neurodiversity and popular culture to gender euphoria and coming out later in life. Join us to hear from a wide range of trans people about their lives, experiences, and what we can all do to support trans rights.
This event will be streamed on the Bristol Pride YouTube channel
