The Bookish Type

Join us for an inspiring evening of trans history!

The Bookish Type and Leeds Queer Film Festival are thrilled to be hosting the launch event for the wonderful new book, Before We Were Trans by Kit Heyam. Writer and trans activist, Kit, will give a reading and discuss their book with Gem Soothill of Non-Binary Action. Kit will sign copies of their book - it will be available to purchase at the event.

After an interval there will be an exclusive Northern premier screening of the Sundance award winning documentary, Framing Agnes. We are delighted to be joined by the film's writer, Morgan M Page for a Q&A.
