Activities programme for trans* October 2021

cartell 2021 dia despato transBThe Formentera Office of Equality and LGTBI Affairs is pleased to present the programme of events commemorating International Day of Trans* Depathologisation, 21 October. "We’ve organised various activities, including theatre and documentaries, but also debates and talks", said Councillor Vanessa Parellada, adding that the programming was geared especially toward young people "so we can work on depathologising gender identities from the grassroots".

First on the bill is the stage production "Entremeses Travestis, un show con un poco de todo", a combination of shows-within-a-show for all audiences: a touch of folklore, a dollop of activism, a sprinkling of lipsyncing and a dash of voguing... all mixed with a healthy serving of art to guarantee a fun night for all. The show starts at 8.30pm Saturday 16 October at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets can be purchased from tomorrow Friday 8 October at entradesformentera.cat or, if space remains, half an hour before the show at the box office.

On the day of the celebration, Thursday 21 October, islanders can catch Manolita, la Chen de Arcos, a documentary that chronicles the life of Manolita, who in the Spain of the mid-nineteen eighties became the first transsexual mother to adopt a child. The film follows Manolita as she recalls the process and her experiences as a transgressive woman at a time when Spain lagged behind in the field, in terms both social and legal. After the documentary, there will be a talk afterwards with Valeria Vegas, director of the documentary, on the importance of LGTB public figures in Spain. The show starts Thursday 21 October at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

Finally, at 6.30pm on Wednesday 27 October the Casal de Joves will be the scene of a workshop, "trans* and non-binary concepts". Presented by Chryssalis, an association of families of trans* minors, and designed especially for young people, the workshop will feature discussion and guided activities about sexual and gender diversity, the LGTBIQA+ community and the experiences of trans* and non-binary people.
