Brighton University holds its Annual Brighton Trans and Non-Binary Conference on July 20, to take place alongside Brighton Trans Pride.

Conference organisers invite trans and non-binary people; researchers; people from the public, community and voluntary sector, and those who want to know more about trans lives and trans issues to the 2017 conference.

Scheduled to run alongside Brighton Trans Pride (July 21-23 2017), this year’s conference seeks to bring trans and non-binary people, researchers and allies (as well as those who seek to work better with trans and non-binary people) together in order to work towards making a more trans and non-binary inclusive society.

Confirmed keynote speakers include: Jack Monroe, Meg-John Barker, EJ Scott and Juno Roche.

There will be a quiet room available at the conference and support will be provided by volunteers from Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard.

The building is fully accessible and sign translators can be appointed if needed.

To contribute to the conference, you will need to submit an outline of what you would like to do (no more than 250 words, but it can be less than this). This will need to be written and submitted by March 24,2017 to, click here:
