Join author and model Jamie Windust and Dr Esther McIntosh, Associate Head of Religion, Politics and International Relations at York St John University, for a fun and frank evening of conversation about the key issues for the LGBT+ community in 2021. Jamie will discuss their debut book, In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life, and share their thoughts on topics ranging from the need for kindness in the LGBT+ community to the impact of Pride cancellations in 2020.
Jamie Windust is an author, model and contributing editor at Gay Times. Their work focuses on their experiences in the fashion and beauty industry and highlights the importance of LGBT+ and trans experiences within these spaces. Jamie’s debut book, In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life, is a brilliantly feisty exploration of their experiences as a non-binary person, and the often-hilarious trials and tribulations of non-binary life.
