Brighton Trans and Non-Binary Conference 2017

The Annual Brighton Trans and Non-Binary Conference for this year is just around the corner, taking place on 20th July 2017 from 9am-5pm. The confirmed keynote speakers for the conference are Jack Monroe (campaigner, columnist and author of ‘A Girl Called Jack’), Meg-John Barker (Open University), EJ Scott (curator of the Museum of Transology) and Juno Roche (Trans Activist).

The conference invites trans and non-binary people; researchers; people from the public; community and voluntary sector; and those who want to know more about trans lives and trans issues to the 2017 conference.

Brighton Trans Pride will be running on the days immediately following the conference, on 21st-23rd July. The two events together seek to bring trans and non-binary people, researchers and allies (as well as those who seek to work better with trans and non-binary people) together to work towards making a more trans and non-binary inclusive society.

The conference is taking place at the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade Building, 58-67 Grand Parade, BN2 0JY. Make sure you book a place before 14th July, as spaces are limited.

Information about cost and registration can be found here.
