My Trans Story was a sell-out success at Mardi Gras in 2018 and 2019. This 2020 season features local and regional storytellers exploring place and belonging. They’re the “gender whisperers” the Prime Minister warned you about.

At a time when the trans experience is becoming more visible, we still rarely see stories by trans and gender diverse people on screens, in theatres, on bookshelves or in popular culture and when we do, they focus on coming out, surgery, discrimination and hate crimes. We’re here to tell you there’s plenty more to the trans narrative.

Yes, we can be linked by feelings of gender dysphoria, name changes, surgeries and marginalisation but our stories are unique and more than our gender; they’re human stories full of love and laughter, curiosity and explorations, triumphs and hope.

Featuring Holly Conroy, Ted Cook, Peta Friend, Bianca Dean, Joel Wilson and more speakers to be announced.
