Queer Contact Festival 2017: Trans Creative @ Contact | England | United Kingdom

A celebration of new transgender performance. Featuring:

Kate O’Donnell: Hayley and Me

Coronation Street’s Hayley Cropper appeared in our living rooms three times a week. Bringing Hayley back into the limelight, Kate O’Donnell’s cabaret takes a nostalgic look at trans history and the impact of this beloved classic character. Expect music, visuals, audience interaction and an iconic anorak.

Elijah Harris: Brand New Boy

How does it feel to be a Brand New Boy? Elijah Harris tackles the intricate complexities, and often mundane experiences, of transitioning from female to male in this playful and important performance.

Part of Queer Contact Festival 2017.
