About SK Shlomo 

I am SK Shlomo and I am #NONBINARY 🏳️‍🌈

Now we’ve launched #BREATHE I am ready to talk about something important – my gender.

Over the past 2 years I have had a series of seismic shifts in my identity. I’m 38 and I realise that if I keep hiding who I am, it is disempowering.

But for now I feel ready, so here goes.

My gender: Non-binary.

I was assigned male at birth, but I am not cisgender – I am trans. Genderqueer. A person who fluctuates between traditional ‘male’ and ‘female’ gender based behaviours, presentations and identities. Genderfluid. I can have a beard and wear a bra. In certain spaces I present as male or masculine, as he/him. In other, safe enough spaces I am able to express the feminine side of myself, as they/them or she/her, and the sheer joy that comes from that fluidity is just beautiful.

A limited number of bursary places are available for this workshop for those on a low income, please email georgina.west@storyhouse.com to apply.
SK Shlomo will also be performing at Storyhouse, find out more here.
