In conversation with Shon Faye.

I went to the In Conversation event organised by Eastbourne Library this week. The author was Shon Faye- writer, broadcaster and activist. Shon presents the ‘Call Me Mother’ podcasts and wrote the critically acclaimed ‘Transgender Issue’ a landmark work that signals the beginning of a new, healthier conversation about trans life.

Faye talked about the Transgender Issue and the call for justice and solidarity between all marginalized people and minorities eloquently and with passion. An interesting hour spent on a Wednesday night in March.

The Transgender Issue: An Argument for Justice by Shon Faye.

The Transgender Issue: An Argument for Justice by Shon Faye

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Shon Faye ‘…uncover(s) the reality of what it means to be trans in a transphobic society…’ The transgender Issue: An Argument for Justice.

I thought this would be heavy going- it wasn’t. It was interesting and informative. I have no strong feelings either way (rightly or wrongly)about the transgender issue. It wasn’t something I had thought about. Shon Faye, has though, opened my eyes on the issues involved and gave me plenty of food for thought. I can’t say I ‘enjoyed’ The Transgender Issue as such- it’s not my normal reading material, but {‘m glad that I read it (listened to it on audio)and that I’m more informed on this high profile issue as a result.
