On Saturday 18 February 2017, The Adam World Choir and Queen Jesus Productions presented Beyond the Binary: Trans Artists in the Digital World. It was a remarkable afternoon exploring how trans and non-binary artists from across the world are digital media to make a difference.
The discussion streamed in speakers from Sao Paolo, Manchester and Nottingham and the whole event was livestreamed on Youtube.
This event begins with writer and performer Jo Clifford and director Susan Worsfold introducing an extract from the film of their globetrotting creation “The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven”, and is followed by a live link up to the Brazilian production team in São Paulo to discuss the impact of their version of the play in Brazil.
Next up, examining the role of digital art in driving social and political change, is Marc David Jacobs from the Scottish Queer International Film Festival, Artist and Activist Kate O’Donnell and musician and producer Kerry JK who also launched an album of new music from members of the Adam World Choir entitled Songs from the New Genderation.
