It’s fourteen years since Kate transitioned and a lot has changed. However, where gender is concerned, are we still stuck in the dark ages? Either way, it’s time to face the music and dance.

A Trans Creative and Contact Co-production

When there’s no rule book you just have to write your own…

Through song, dance, hard-won wit and wisdom, You’ve Changed shines a light on the ins, outs, ups and downs of transitioning.

Challenging the idea that genitals equal gender, Kate literally bares all, exploring what’s down there, and what’s up here.

Kate’s changed: that’s clear. But what she really wants to know is, have you?

Trans Creative is a new trans led theatre company with an aim to increase positive trans visibility and representation. Telling trans stories creatively through the arts, advocacy and education.
