Note: this workshop is in English (with Dutch translation)
How do you name your own body while you’re in a transition or you have ever been through a transition? What words do you use to describe certain – changed or unchanged – body parts, for yourself and for your lover? How do you want your loved ones or partners to name your body?
Transgender activist, educator and performer Kay Garnellen shares his experiences and accompanies you during this workshop. He does this together with Jonathan Todd, who is involved in Transman foundation. A stimulating, safe and relaxing environment where we put an end to narrow-minded thinking.

Transgender, transsexual or genderqueer. You may already be familiar with there terms, or be guessing their actual content. During this movie night these concepts will become tangible. TranScreen Festival selects films which positively address, or at least loosen, the male-female dichotomy. Tonight we watch ‘Fake Orgasm’, a film about performance artist and activist Lazlo Pearlman; about art, sex, performance, fake and real.
“When are you a real man and when are you a Barbie superstar? Fake Orgasm hits you like a thunderbolt!”
Of course, the curators of the festival will explain their choices and answer all of your questions. Furthermore, our special guest, transgender activist Kay Garnellen, will complete the broad perspective.
