TransMCR - May

12th May 2018, Manchester

Event Full Details:

How is the media affecting us? How are we seen in the press? How do video games tie into gender?

This month, we're taking a look at the media - whether it's movies, social media, or video games, we're looking at how it ties into us as a community. Watch a movie, play some video games, and have fun!

Programme:
