‘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

I hope it is going well. I was unable to come as I have a contemporary dance class on Thursday nights.

Hi everyone, Thanks to a generous donation, we have 5 free tickets available for people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to come. Let me know if that's you/a friend/someone you know? And please share? Thank you

I still haven't sorted out a ticket for myself. Can I be cheeky and ask for one of these?

Really wish I could come but sadly, I'm teaching that night. Hope it's a huge success.

Ah, awkward timing - the PTA AGM is that night as well. Hmm. I'll admit I'd rather come to this than sit in a stuffy PTA meeting trying to avoid being "volunteered" for stuff!

I really hope I can come, but it'll be manic for me in the run up to our pride. So very happy for you, I hope you feel as accomplished as we see you as 😆 xx

I know it's hard. I've seen excellent feedback about both endeavours all very the place already- proof is in the pudding 💜
