Sabah Choudrey Book Launch: Supporting Trans People of Colour

Sabah Choudrey Book Launch: Supporting Trans People of Colour

Thursday 27th January - 7pm doors / 7:30pm start

Free (ticketed via Eventbrite)

Trans people of colour are often excluded because gender and race are treated as separate issues. They are therefore left out from movements and services. Choudrey’s guide introduces the theory of intersectionality from the start, giving practical tips and steps to ensure that the community as a whole may be represented and creates a safer space for trans people of colour to thrive.

An empowering tool, Supporting Trans People of Colour is an invaluable resource for therapists, counsellors, healthcare professionals, those working in education and charities, as well as those wanting to make their approach more inclusive, loving, and understanding in everyday life!

Held in the arcade space outside the shop and in Sacred Grounds. Please wrap up warm. Warm drinks will be available.
