London Trans Pride X VFD X UKBP

As part of the lead up to London Trans Pride 2019 in September the event organisers want to reach out to as many communities as possible and to consult with them about all aspects of the event. This evening is a chance for you to come meet with members of the team and to talk and share your thoughts on the issues raised in the film 'United Tongues' that are still affecting the QTIPOC community some 30yrs later.

Taking a lead on the evening will be QTIPOC performance artist and member of London Trans Pride organisers Katayoun Jalili.

This event is part of the week of programming leading up the UK Black Pride on the 7th of July.

Free event.

Sip + Rhyme : Mother's Tongue

Sip + Rhyme : Mother's Tongue

Sip + Rhyme is here to put the pen in your hand, the mic to your voice and burst those hectic stress bubbles we find ourselves in.

With a special edition of #sipandrhyme, we are striking the rules on translation and letting your mother tongue run wild.

So, if English isn’t your first language or if you're keen to learn and experience Global Licks, we celebrate your native tongue and want to hear your words free from contradiction or grammatical syntax; self-doubt edits and share your home's vocal rhythm.
