For OUTing the Past: Preston Katie Hutchinson joins us to give a presentation about how rock music has long been a voice for minority groups, this includes the trans and gender variant community. From lyrics in songs from Lou Reed and the Kinks to blurring gender stereotypes in image (Bowie, New York Dolls etc), through to trans pioneers such as Jayne County from the punk era to Laura Jane Grace today. This talk will give a brief run through that history and talk about how it has helped in changing attitudes and bringing awareness.

Places for the presentations are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
