We will meet at the former border to discuss the rights of transgender people in Slovenia and Italy.
Together with the two speakers, we will explore the history and present of trans rights activism in both countries and how far we have come. We will talk about the everyday life of trans people in Slovenia and Italy and how it is affected by rights or the lack thereof.
After an introductory talk with the guests, the floor will be opened for discussion with the participants of the event, for sharing experiences, opinions and questions.
