From having played bizarre supporting roles, trans individuals have now taken big strides forward in TV series, films, books and graphic novels. Elias Ericson’s graphic novel Diana & Charlie is about two trans teenagers, about identity, mental ill health and an uncomprehending adult world. Olivia Skoglund depicts her own gender transition with humour and seriousness in Nästan i mål! (Almost There!). Edward Summanen is an expert in trans issues at RFSL and has just released Queera tider – hbtqi då och nu (Queer Times – LGBTQ Now and Then). Together they will converse about trans depictions in culture, stories that are lacking, and the importance of humour. Moderator: Jenny Jägerfeld, psychologist and author.
Speakers: Elias Ericson, Olivia Skoglund, Edward Summanen.
Moderator: Jenny Jägerfeld.
Organised in collaboration with the authors’ Swedish publishers: Galago and Rabén & Sjögren.
