My Trans Story

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

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

We’re here to tell you there’s plenty more to the trans narrative. Each trans experience is diverse and wonderful. Yes, we can be linked by feelings of gender dysphoria, name changes and surgeries 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 was a sell-out success at the 2018 and 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival. This Brisbane event features eight local and interstate storytellers, the “gender whisperers” the Prime Minister warned you about.

Grab your ticket and hear them roar.

Reviews

On nights like this, seeing people on stage and speaking power to their truth, we can definitely see change.
