Join us for a very special Open Barbers Q&A event where we turn the
salon into a loving discussion space for solidarity, creative sharing
and peer learning with the incredible artist Sophie Labelle!
Labelle is the creator of Assigned Male comics, a quippy series
following a diverse cast of kids, many of whom just happen to be trans –
and through their voices, we experience the everyday and the not-so
everyday ups and downs of life and relationships as non cisgender /
heterosexual children. At a time where cis content creators so often
pull out the trans card on their characters to “make things interesting”
and create melodrama, it is so important for trans people, trans youth
especially, to see themselves represented as confident, able and
has also written & illustrated several books, most recently “My Dad
Thinks I’m a BOY?!”, a trans-positive children’s book – and goodness
knows, trans youth need all the positivity they can get! Sophie will be
selling stickers, posters, comics and books which can be signed on
