100 Trans Voices!

100 Trans Voices!

Trans Vegas is the UK’s only trans arts festival. It’s curated by Kate O’Donnell, Artistic Director of Trans Creative, and takes place in Manchester from 29 June to 3 July.

The festival theme is lifting trans spirits and the headline event is called 100 Trans Voices.

Kate needs your help to make this the single biggest trans arts event ever! She is looking for trans and non-binary people who would like to share a story in a unique trans flash-mob at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre. 

We want to fill the theatre with 100 trans people sharing stories in a safe welcoming space. 

Here’s how to get involved:

Come to Royal Exchange Theatre at 5pm on Sunday 30 June with a story to share. This can be anything important to you as a trans person: funny, sad, strange, empowering! After some social time and rehearsal, the event will commence around 7.30pm and you will tell your story to one another and to audience members, one on one, in a friendly relaxed space, before joining the entire group of 100 Trans Voices on stage in a joyful moment of togetherness.

If you’d rather share your story digitally, please record your voice only, telling a story of less than 3 minutes and email to admin@transcreative.uk You are still welcome to attend the event in person of course!

We can contribute to travel in Greater Manchester.

Please let us know if you would like to take part, and for any queries and digital submissions, please email admin@transcreative.uk with 100 Trans Voices as your subject line.

We can’t wait to hear your story!
