PREVIEW: BEYOND THE BINARY
Stories from Trans and non-binary people
What’s it like to live as a transgender or non-binary person in Nigeria, Pakistan, Scotland or Russia?
The National Theatre of Scotland’s Adam World Choir is a digital community of transgender and non-binary people around the globe. Together with the Mental Health Foundation and Freight Books, they are creating a new book of first-person accounts by transgender and non-binary people worldwide. These are fascinating, moving, sometimes harrowing tales, stories about survival, stories about hope, joy and endurance and finding a place to call home.
As a result of stigma, prejudice and violence, many trans people live with poor mental health, and suicide rates are high. The book aims to increase understanding and acceptance, and empower others to share their own stories. Join us for an exclusive preview of the book at this event, presented in partnership with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.
Full event details to be announced closer to the time.
