I AM: BOOK LAUNCH
What’s it like to grow up as a transgender or non-binary person in Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal or Russia?
I Am is a new book developed in partnership between the Mental Health Foundation and the National Theatre of Scotland’s Adam World Choir, a digital community of transgender and non-binary people from all around the world.
Two years in the making, the book – supported by Freight Design – is a collection of fascinating, moving tales from across the globe, stories about survival, stories about hope, joy and endurance and finding a place to call home.
I Am contains contributions from over two dozen members of the Adam World Choir - including Adam Kashmiry, whose own story the choir soundtracks in the National Theatre of Scotland’s hit show, Adam. The book is introduced by playwright Jo Clifford, whose autobiographical show Eve premiered alongside Adam at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe.
I Am will be launched with a free drinks reception at Dundee Rep Theatre in the interval between that night's performances of Eve and Adam. The book will be available to purchase online from the end of May.
More details and booking information for Eve / Adam can be found here.
