Trans Tapes: Broadening the Narrative of What it Means to be Trans

by our Editors in Scene , 15 juni 2016

On June 22, at IHLIA the second edition of QueerTalk will take place. The last few years several stories of trans people were brought to the attention of the general public. Sharing stories and gaining insight in the lives of trans people is important for gaining knowledge and could potentially empower trans people.

But what if a trans person doesn’t feel represented by the offered narrative? This was the case for Bart Peters, Jonah Lamers and Chris Rijksen. They took action to make trans people’s voice heard and created the “Trans Tapes.”

The “Trans Tapes” is a series of six short portraits about transgender people in the Netherlands. While many narratives dealing with the topic “transgender” tend to turn transgender people into subjects instead of humans, the “Trans Tapes” focuses on strength, positivity and human resilience.

The series broadens the narrative and reveals a more layered image of what it can mean to be transgender. In the second edition of “QueerTalk,” the audience will get the chance to see and hear more about the project.

“QueerTalk” is a collaboration of Mosse Foundation and IHLIA.

QueerTalk #2, Wednesday June 22, 2016, 17:30–19:00. OBA (Public library) Amsterdam, IHLIA, sixth floor. Free entrance.
