Award-winning writer and performer Travis Alabanza in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge
Part of LGBT+ History Month 2023: Behind the Lens
Travis Alabanza is an award-winning trans writer and performer: the creator of the stage shows Burgerz and Overflow. They have now written an electric memoir, None of the Above, about what it means to live outside the gender boundaries imposed on us by society.
Travis talks to Reni Eddo-Lodge about their transformative experiences as a Black, mixed race, non-binary person and the phrases people have directed at them: from the deceptively innocuous to the deliberately loaded or offensive to the celebratory. Travis Alabanza turns a mirror back on society, to question the very framework in which we live and the ways we treat each other.
In partnership with the British Library and the Living Knowledge Network.
