Tranz Talkz

Supported by the UK/Australia Season Patrons Board, The British Council and the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season. 

Tranz Talks is a structured conversation held online about public harassment for up to 30 trans and gender non conforming people led by artist Travis Alabanza, over an intimate dinner of burger and chips.

In response to the lack of public archive present around how queer and trans people navigate public space, Travis Alabanza has held conversations across the UK, to discuss and talk with trans folk about their experiences when going outside. The events are aimed at those who identified as trans and gender non-conforming.

Food delivery credit will be provided so that all guests can eat and share together from the comfort of home.

Tranz Talks Dinners

In April 2016 someone threw a burger at Travis Alabanza on Waterloo Bridge (London) and shouted a transphobic slur. Over a hundred people saw the incident but did nothing.

This event led to the creation of their award winning theatre show BURGERZ which has been touring internationally since 2018. In this specially commissioned film, Travis invites three black trans artists to share food and discuss their experiences of working in the arts.
