Poster Attempt 1

So if you’re anything to do with me on Facebook you’ll have been spammed to oblivion about this event. But that said I’M VERY EXCITED AND NERVOUS BUT MOSTLY EXCITED about this!

So it’s called The Groove Within Us. It is a discussion/music night. We have a fantastic panel who will be discussing “Transgender Visibility: What aspects of trans life are visible and is that visibility a good thing?”. Then when we’ve all become more informed and educated, we’re going to celebrate with a party led by my new band “The Groove Within Us House Band”. This band features the incredible vocal talents of Ruth Royall.

There’s lots more info HERE

and Tickets are available HERE

Hope to see you there
