Event description

Description

We're pleased to announce that we've teamed up again with our friends at the LGBT Foundation to bring JUNO ROCHE back to Manchester on Friday 6th March when she'll be talking about her latest book TRANS POWER: OWN YOUR GENDER. The evening will be hosted by Kate O'Donnell - founder / director of Trans Creative (https://transcreative.uk/) and recently seen playing Electra in the Royal Exchange's production of GYPSY.

About the book:

In the follow-up to Queer Sex, her radical guide to sex, desire and dating in the trans and non-binary community, Juno Roche pushes the boundaries of trans representation even further by moving beyond themes of intimacy, pleasure and relationships and focusing on the mechanics of sex itself. A collection of interviews with leading figures from the trans and non-binary community, they talk about the practicalities of sex as a trans person. They discuss how trans bodies can inherently bring a range of practical issues to the bedroom and explore the wonder and potential of sex when the bodies involved are not cis. Reframing the discussion of trans sex in terms of empowerment and autonomy, this is a deeply personal, honest and instructive book.

'Staggeringly visionary' - Attitude

'Essential reading' - Charlie Craggs

'Bold and ground-breaking' - Owl
