Join Jamie Windust and York St John University for an evening of conversation as part of LGBT+ History Month.

About this Event

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.

Esther McIntosh holds a BD (Hons) and PhD from the University of Aberdeen. She held a lectureship in Religion, Gender and Ethics at the University of Leeds until 2008, before joining York St John University. Her work is interdisciplinary, predominantly in the fields of feminist theology and ethics, and underpinned by a concern for gender justice. Her publications include John Macmurray’s Religious Philosophy: What it Means to be a Person and ‘Public Theology, Populism and Sexism: The Hidden Crisis’. She is currently in the final stages of a two-year project exploring chaplaincy support for trans and non-binary staff and students at Anglican foundation universities, funded by the Church Universities Fund and York St John University.
