A Short History of Trans Misogyny with Jules Gill Petersen
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Short History of Trans Misogyny has been cancelled. We apologise and will issue refunds within 5 working days.

he first of three reading groups hosted by Verso, this intimate evening holds an invitation to dive deeply into Jules Gill Petersen’s accessible, bold new vision for trans feminism’s intersectional and global future with the author. There is no shortage of voices demanding everyone pay attention to the violence trans women suffer. But one frighteningly basic question seems never to be answered: why does it happen?

A Short History of Trans Misogyny is the first book to explain why trans women are burdened by such a weight of injustice and hatred.
