Tranz Talkz – An Evening with Travis Alabanza

Date:Wed 21 Nov
Time:7pm
Venue:J3
Price:Free*

Calling trans and non-binary folk! Join prominent queer artist Travis Alabanza for an intimate dinner of burgers and chips to discuss, reflect and document experiences of queer and transphobic public harassment.

In response to the lack of public archive present around how queer and trans people navigate public space, Alabanza is holding community conversations across the UK, to discuss and talk with people about what they experience when going outside. The event is aimed at trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people, and open to anyone that faces harassment based on their trans/queerness.

The evening will be a dinner table format, with food provided, prompt questions, and is open for people to speak and share their experiences – or just to listen.

The conversations will be sound recorded, as part of Hackney Showroom and Travis Alabanza’s ongoing documentation of the trans experience, for archiving and heritage collection purposes, in partnership with Bishopsgate Institute and Hackney Museum, supported by the Heritage Lottery Foundation. Some of the audio recordings will form part of an exhibition, running alongside Alabanza's new show BURGERZ, presented by Hackney Showroom, : 'BURGERZ previews at Ovalhouse on 19 & 20 October, opens at Hackney Showroom 23 October - 3 November, plays at the Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester from 14-17 November and Homotopia on 18 November.

Permissions will be sought on the evening to record participants’ voices – if you do not wish to be recorded, you can still attend the event as an observer.

*Tickets are FREE but you need to book your ticket in advance.
