We would like to invite you to you to the Transgender History Month event – Jessica Lynn on 9 September 2022 at the Kino Kameralne Cafe.
Jessica Lynn is a world-renowned transgender advocate, educator, and activist. Her experiences as a transgender woman and parent led her to dedicate her life to spreading awareness and acceptance for gender non-conforming communities around the world. Jessica is considered, internationally, one of the foremost transgender speakers due to her dynamic, refreshingly honest speaking style, unique sense of humour and signature 'ask-me-anything’ Q&A sessions. Over the last several years, Jessica has travelled over a million miles, visiting 28 different countries, presenting over a twelve hundred times, helping to educate the general public about the transgender community… and she isn’t finished yet.
