About this Event

“Those who do not learn history, are doomed to repeat it.” – George Santayana

During Black History Month, we remember and honour black and world his/her/their-story. We’re often questioned why this month exists, but not often asked what we can learn from it. What can we learn from the past that can keep trans people of colour safe? What can we learn from the past that can teach us about power? Learn about privilege (in a good way), make yourselves (un)comfortable, and let's make this new academic year a year of solidarity.

Sabah co-founded Trans Pride Brighton in 2013, winner of the Best Trans Event in Brighton (2014, 2015) and nominated for Best Trans Event at the National Diversity Awards (2016). They have worked with queer, trans and non-binary youth since 2014 with Allsorts Youth Project, Metro Charity and Gendered Intelligence from Brighton to London, and formed networks for BAME LGBTQ Youth Workers and Youth across the UK.In 2015, Sabah made it onto The Rainbow List celebrating 101 of the most influential LGBT people in Britain and spoke about being ‘Brown, Trans, Muslim and Proud’ at TEDxBrixton, which has hit almost 30K views.

Since then, Sabah has been featured at pride festivals worldwide, from Toronto to Brussels, creating an established presence in the European LGBT community and within trans organisations, including TGEU and IGLA-Europe.
