Young trans activist Charlie Craggs brings her new book to the Trans Vegas Arts Festival. ‘To My Trans Sisters’ is a collection of letters written by trans women for trans women. Contributors to the book include Shon Faye, Juno Roche, Juliet Jacques, Juno Dawson, Christine Burns, Kuchenga Shenje, Trans Creative’s Kate O’Donnell and many more.
Charlie Craggs was placed #1 on the Observer’s ‘New Radicals’ list of social innovators, won a Marie Claire Future Shaper award in 2017 and a ‘Rising Star’ award from Diva Magazine in 2018.
Special guest Kuchenga Shenje will host the conversation with Charlie. Kuchenga is a vivacious writer, committed trans feminist agitator and member of Bent Bars Collective.
Our event will include real talk on trans women’s lives with guest readings, audience questions and stimulating chat about race, class, age and the intersectionality of being trans.
