Are cis men welcome to come to Lady&trans*fest ?
Lady&trans*fest is organised by a small collective of women and trans* folk. All our bands, workshops givers, and artists will mostly consist of women, trans people and intersex folk. All genders are welcome to come to the festival. Be aware that some workshops might only be open to women and trans people.
What does ‘cis’ mean?
A cis person is a person who identifies with the gender that they were assigned at birth.
There’s a man in that women & trans* only workshop! What do I do?
We ask for everyone who comes to Lady&trans* fest to be aware of their privileges, and consider whether it’s appropriate for them to attend certain different workshops. If you are a cis man please do not attend the workshops that are only open to women and trans people.
We are gonna do our best to make that clear at the festival, therefore we ask everyone not to take it upon themselves to question people’s genders in workshops. Please don’t assume that you know someone’s gender because of how they dress/talk/appear.
