PREVIEW: Orlando, My Political Biography (Pride 2024)

Thursday 13th June

Ealing

Description & further information

From acclaimed writer and activist Paul B. Preciado, ORLANDO: MY POLITICAL BIOGRAPHY is a bold and joyous celebration of trans identity, told through the lens of Virginia Woolf’s iconic novel.

Woolf’s Orlando follows the centuries-spanning life of a young nobleman who awakens to find that they a woman. Almost a century after its publication, Preciado claims that fiction has become reality and Orlando’s story lies at the root of all contemporary trans and non-binary life.

Told through a myriad of trans and non-binary voices living today – our new ‘Orlandos’ – this documentary offers a dazzling example of how life, poetry and gender can meet in search for truth.

Pride Month takes place every June and is a continued celebration and recognition of the influence of the LGBTQ+ community.
