Gavin Roach and Jacob Thomas present the World Premiere of Transgression.
Sure, we have marriage, but some of us still can’t take a piss without getting harassed.
‘Transgression’ is the premiere show by human rights advocate, Jacob Thomas, that explores the lived experience of being gender diverse after Australia passed marriage equality.
Be sinful. Break the rules. Be authentic. And if you can’t freely take a piss then take the piss freely out of those who hurt you.
Jacob is nonbinary, a Queen’s Young Leader and a human rights advocate, who was the interim-Coordinator of the Commonwealth Youth Gender & Equality Network. Jacob has represented the network at numerous international levels, including working with UN Women’s Commission on the Status of Women and ECOSOC Youth forums in New York, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in London and AIDS2018 in Amsterdam.
Jacob has presented a TEDx Talk around gender identity, is a contributor to Archer Magazine and Star Observer, has written for BuzzFeed about their experience coming out as nonbinary, and currently sits on the UN Girls’ Education Initiative youth committee.
