Online Lecture – Trans Through the Ages: A Trans Day of Visibility Event

Friday 31 March 2023, 14:00 – 15:30 BST, online (UK)


The University of Liverpool Trans & Non-Binary Peer Support Group invite you to this event to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility 2023:

Trans Through the Ages

Transgendered people are not an invention of the 21st Century, but so many of us are unaware of our history which stretches back to antiquity. The University of Liverpool Trans and Non-binary Peer Support Network invites trans people and their allies to a fascinating talk by Saorsa-Amatheia Tweedale, exploring this history, some of which has been forgotten and some deliberately erased. Saorsa-Amatheia will talk about evidence of trans people in ancient times, shifting gender roles coupled with revolution in the 18th century, and the origins of our modern understanding of being transgender in the mid-20th century.

How will the session run?

This session will last 1.5 hours and will be held as a zoom webinar. You will not be able to see participants other than the hosts, but you may switch on your camera to ask a question at the end if you wish for the Q&A. You will be able to message the hosts directly should you need any assistance during the event, or if you wish to submit questions for the Q&A. However the chat function will be closed throughout the main talk to help create a safe and confidential space for participants. Only the hosts will be able to see your zoom name. This seminar will be recorded to enable those who are unable to attend to watch at a later date.
