Glasgow Zine Fest A Disobedient History of Trans Literature

Sun 19 April 2020

A Disobedient History of Trans Literature

An introductory talk to trans literature in English.

We’ll talk about the various ways that trans writers have refused and shaped literary genres, the explosion of trans writing in the last ten years, how zines, small presses, pulp magazines and self-publishing are vital to trans literature, and how trans literature shapes trans identity. You’ll come away learning about lots of books you didn’t know existed, and there’ll be time for discussion too.


Harry Josephine Giles is a writer and performer from Orkney, Scotland who makes art about protest and protests about art. They also co-direct the live art platform ANATOMY and do lyrics and vocals for the punk band Fit to Work.

BSL is available for workshops upon request - please contact before 1 April 2020.
