Yes, You Are Trans Enough

  • LIGHTHOUSE - Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop 43-45 West Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9DB United Kingdom (map)

with author Mia Violet

Mia Violet discusses her deeply personal and witty account of growing up as the kid who never fitted in, and how she finally realised that she was ‘trans enough’ to be transgender. 

Relating personal stories from bullying and botched coming-out attempts, to self-acceptance and love, Mia gives us entertaining and thoughtful observations on her real life experiences. She also explores the radical inaccuracies in the way that trans people and rights are depicted in the media with Lighthouse’ Writer in residence Eris Young, author of They, Them/ Their.
