Seasons of love - monthly talks & socials

In the first half of the evening, discover something amazing with a talk from someone with a fascinating perspective on love, relationships, sexuality, kink or intimacy. 

In the second, meet and team up with other guests on a practical exercise / mini workshop / quiz. Plus general socialising in the breaks.

SABAH CHOUDREY the best of both worlds

JO HAUGE

 

SABAH CHOUDREY -  (7.45pm approx - arrive any time)

Sabah is a queer Muslim social justice fighter, currently works with METRO Charity and Gendered Intelligence in London doing Trans Youth Support Work and sits as an advisor with Inclusive Mosque Initiative. Sabah has published ‘Inclusivity: On Supporting Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) Trans People’ and works as a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant in UK.

Sabah gave a TEDx talk in Brixton in 2015 sharing their experiences of being a hairy brown girl, an angry brown man and a queer brown person, and made The Rainbow List celebrating 101 of the most influential LGBT people in Britain, 2015.

One of the co-founders of Trans Pride Brighton, winner of the best trans event in Brighton 2014, 2015, and nominated for ‘Best Trans Event’ at the National Diversity Awards, 2016, Sabah has been published in The Huffington Post, Black Girl Dangerous and writes on sabahchoudrey.com.

'The Best of Both Worlds' - Sabah is your experiment and Sabah is your exemption. Sabah is your hairy brown fetish. Sabah is your FTM transsexual obsession. Interrogate your preferences, deconstruct your desire and feel uncomfortable.

 

JO HAUGE - (8.45pm approx - arrive any time)

Jo is a queer, nonbinary artist from Oslo, Norway. Their practice is driven by their love for all things hysterical, pretty and seemingly trivial, and anger at the idea that objectivity or neutrality are things to aspire to. Because of this, their work is rigorously and aggressively feminine and mental, and being visibly and loudly vulnerable is at the core of what they do.

They have have performed at Steakhouse Live, Woteverclub and Duckie at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Chisenhale Dance Space, the South London Gallery, Battersea Arts Centre, Chelsea Theatre, Camden People’s Theatre and a nuclear bunker in Essex, among other places.

They are interested in femme identities, Britney Spears' mental breakdown, sex work and also facilitate performance workshops for people of all ages, most recently on using personas and playing with gendered expectations in performance.

 


Tickets are £5 in advance (£3 concessions) or £10 on the door.
