Launch party: Trans Like Me + Come Home
‘This personal, powerful and yet humble human testimony makes a vital contribution to a debate that has too often contained more heat than light. I challenge anyone not to have both heart and mind a little more open after reading this book.’ Shami Chakrabarti
Trans Like Me is the culmination of many years' worth of work - and I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you. We're taking over The Archivist for an evening of words and music: readings from my first book, songs from my new album Come Home, discussion, debate, and celebration.
“When it comes to describing CN Lester’s music, there aren’t enough adjectives synonymous with ‘gorgeous’.” For Folk's Sake
The Archivist is a beauitful, fully wheelchair accessible venue on Regent's Canal. I'll be doing my best to make this my best performance to date - I'd love to see you there. Thank you.
"Lester is a writer for our times - a moving, learned and essential voice at the razor edge of gender politics. Their work has been inspirational to me for many years. Lester writes with the compassionate authority of a person not just wise beyond their years, but beyond the age they were born into." Laurie Penny
