Tranz Talkz event heading to Coventry

Posted on 26 Jun 2018

A free event hosted by prominent queer artist Travis Alabanza takes place at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre this September (Thursday 20).


In what’s being billed as an intimate dinner of burgers, chips and drinks, the show will reflect and document experiences of queer and transphobic public harassment.

In response to the lack of public archive around how queer and trans people navigate public space, Alabanza is holding conversations across the UK to find out about people’s experiences when going outside. 


The event is geared towards trans, non binary and gender non-conforming people, and is open to anyone who faces harassment based on their trans/queerness.

The evening will take a dinner table format, with food & drink provided and prompt questions. The conversations will be sound-recorded, as part of Travis’s ongoing documentation of the trans experience for archiving and heritage collection purposes.
