Yves Rees in conversation
Please note: This is an online event.
Join us for an evening with Jamila Rizvi and Yves Rees in conversation.
What happens when, aged 30, you understand you’re transgender?
This was the question that confronted Yves Rees, a historian whose life was upended by gender transition in 2018. Then known as a woman called Anne, Yves was forced to grapple with the sudden knowledge that they were not, in fact, female at all.
But when you’ve lived a lie for so long, how do you discover who you really are? And how do you re-learn to live in the world as a different gender?
We are delighted to have Yves with us to talk about their moving journey of re-becoming, at the same time laying bare the messiness of bodies, gender and identity. All about Yves shares the challenges and joys of being transgender in Australia today, and reveals how trans experiences like Yves' can teach all of us about what it means to be human.
