Free to Be Me: Refugee Stories
Time & Location
About the Event
In 2017, Jane Traies presented 'The Other Consenting Adults' at the Shrewsbury LGBT History Festival, sharing with us memories and opinions of women born before 1950 who identify as lesbian or bisexual. You can revisit that presentation via this podcast, with accompanying photographs: The Other Consenting Adults
In 2021, programmed for International Women's Day, Jane is back with us, with a collection of different stories.
Free to Be Me, edited by Jane Traies, is a new book of interviews with lesbian and bi women seeking asylum in the UK and the campaigners working with them. Here in their own words are their stories of love, trauma, struggle and friendship, courage and solidarity.
Join publisher Helen Sandler (Tollington Press) in conversation with Jane, and hear from members of the Lesbian Immigration Support Group about their experiences.
