Blurring the Lines: Trans representation and gender expression in rock music, Kate Hutchinson @ The People's History Museum

Rock music has long been a voice for minority groups. Join Kate Hutchinson for a whirlwind journey through the history of trans and gender variant representation in music, exploring how it has helped in changing attitudes and bringing awareness.  From lyrics in songs from Lou Reed and the Kinks to blurring gender stereotypes in image, through to trans pioneers such as Jayne County from the punk era to Laura Jane Grace today.
