Just in case you’ve somehow managed to avoid my constant chattering about this, I’d like to invite you (ever so cordially) to join us this Friday, June 28th, for the London Pride edition of Transpose. It’s everything that Transpose normally is, but BIGGER – but still for charity, and only £5 on the door.



We’re back in the gorgeous Cinema Museum with videos from My Genderation, storytelling from Roz Kaveney, Jacqueline Applebee and Hel Gurney, art and a videobooth from the Translations project, art from Claudia Moroni and Sara Moralo, poetry from Lyman Gamberton, AJ McKenna, Kat Gupta and Elaine O’Neill, and music from me and Wild. 



This time we’re raising funds for You Are Loved, the trans suicide prevention project – I don’t need to tell you how important that is. The more people through the door the more money they take come – so please come, and bring as many people as you can.

    Reblogged this on Hel Gurney and commented:
    This is another one of those flying updates along the lines of “hey, I’m doing some stuff – come see it!”

    This Friday is the biggest and most packed Transpose yet – see below for details, and if you’re able to make it, then please come along!

    And while you’re checking out CN’s blog, there’s a lot of writing from me in the “Beyond the Binary” panel answers – we’re over half way through now!

    Aaah, if I’d found out about this earlier I might’ve told the people who are now going to stay with me that I’d not be here, but so I’ll have to miss out on this 😦 when/where are you next performances ?
    And are you going to be around this Saturday sometime/somewhere?

  • […] going to go ahead and leave this link here. Ahem. Panel bios […]

    Thanks for organising last night. It was a great event and people were clearly having a great time.

    A couple of things could make the next one even better for some people (including me, but possibly not limited to me):

    – either opening the doors at the advertised time or having seating in the waiting area (I was in too much pain from standing for ~45 minutes to get the most out of the rest of the evening, and left in the first interval).

    – trigger warnings being given with information about what sort of potential trigger and with an opportunity to act on the warning by getting out of the area: the warning at the beginning of the ‘Tranpa’ film didn’t give information or allow people time to act on it.

    I have heard from many people that it was a great event and I don’t want to diminish that at all with these observations! Please feel free not to make this comment public if you’d rather not.

      Thanks for giving feedback – can hardly make things better if people don’t feel comfortable pointing out problems. Re: trigger warnings – was thinking that a solution might be to publish a programme a week before event with content notes? And then paper copies on the door on the night?

      Re: doors – a bit confused, as we were in the venue and welcoming people in from five (quite few people arrived early and relaxed upstairs with a drink during sound check) – would you be able to give me a few more details so that I can make sure it works out better next time?

      Thank you again, for coming and for feedback

      • sharon says:

        I like your suggestion about trigger warnings.

        I think there must have been crossed wires on the door: I arrived a little before 6:30 and I (and lots of others) was kept in a queue downstairs until about 7:15 when we were able to buy tickets and come upstairs. The only people who were sent upstairs during that time were performers. I’m glad to hear that wasn’t intentional!

        Thanks again. x

          Hmmm…that’s very strange – sounds like one of the cinema museum volunteers must have misunderstood, as the ones working with us had been letting in and looking after audience members all afternoon. Damn. Thanks for letting me know! X
