Rhyannon Styles: The New Girl
Jersey Festival of Words 2017
Where: Jersey Arts Centre
When: 30 September 2017 at 6.30pm
‘The New Girl’ is the memoir of an extraordinary woman – who happens to identify as transgender. Journalist, performance artist and musician Rhyannon Styles documents her life story, including her transition from male to female.
Imagine feeling lost in your own body. Imagine spending years living a lie, denying what makes you ‘you’. This was Ryan’s reality. He had to choose: die as a man or live as a woman. In 2012, Ryan made the choice to set Rhyannon free. At the age of thirty Rhyannon began her transition, taking the first steps on the long road to her true self, and the emotional, physical and psychological journey that would change her for ever.
Interviewing Rhyannon will be BBC Journalist Chris Stone.
