Gender Exploration - Intersectional feminism society talk

This Wednesday 15th March (6-8pm in MHLT) IFemSoc will be hosting a guest panel with two incredible trans activists, Travis Alabanza and Sabah Choudrey. With them, we'll be exploring the parameters of gender, learning more about their own experiences moving through the world as black and brown trans bodies, and how it's shaped the incredible work they both now do as acclaimed artists, speakers and youth workers. This event is free and open to all students and staff, and has been fully funded by a grant from the SGUL Change fund. There'll be pizza, as well as good vibes and insightful conversation - hope to catch you there x
