WestPride author visit: ”Gender Euphoria” – Laura Kate Dale

Pride author visit ”Gender Euphoria” – Laura Kate Dale
 
GÖTEBORG | Monday 5 June at 19:15. Free event
 

We are proud to host author Laura Kate Dale for a talk about her anthology book Gender Euphoria as part of WestPride in Göteborg.

Laura has assembled stories from non-cisgender authors who wants to share and celebrate the euphoric feelings they have experienced in coming out.

The book shows how there is another side to coming out as non-cisgender than the discomfort-filled one most often showed and discussed in the public eye. To finally being able to be ones most authentic self, unrestrained by the gender identity assigned to us based on our biological sex at birth, can be filled with happiness and freedom.
