Manchester Art Gallery
Monday 1 July 2019, 6pm–8pm
Trans Vegas host this stylish evening at Manchester Art Gallery bringing together trans men discussing how they wear masculinity, feminism, pregnancy and, of course, clothes.
The event will feature a first look at the Gallery’s new couture acquisitions dating back from the 19th century to the present day. We are excited to have a EJ Scott, curator of the Museum of Transology, chairing the event. As Scott puts it, “We will be discussing why men can’t wear what they want, and how this links to trans rights being a struggle for equal rights for all genders”
This round table event will include invited contributions from Jamie Hale, Zorian Clayton and HUSK as well as creating places for everyone to take a seat should they wish.
Doors will open at 6pm for drinks, informal chat and to view the collection. At 7pm you will take your seat to observe or take part in the round table discussion. Your £5.00 ticket includes a free glass of wine or seasonal soft drink.
With thanks for the support and funding for this event from Arts Council England and the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund.
