Event Details

Featuring Tea Uglow, Andrew Guy + more to be announced.

At a time when the trans experience is becoming more visible we still rarely see stories by trans and gender diverse people on a screen, in theatres, a bookshelf or in popular culture and when we do, they focus on coming out and surgery or discrimination and hate crimes.

We’re here to tell you there’s plenty more to the trans narrative. Yes, we can be linked by feelings of gender dysphoria, name changes, surgeries and marginalisation but our stories are unique and more than our gender; they’re human stories full of love and laughter, curiosity and explorations, triumphs and hope.

My Trans Story is back for a fourth year at Mardi Gras Festival. From the personal to the political My Trans Story features proud trans and gender diverse storytellers from Sydney and beyond celebrating their complex, sometimes funny, often fearless, always fierce histories.
