Stephen Piper is a quiet young man. What is his secret? 

original BBC Billing for Even Solomon.

In 1979 the BBC’s Play for Today strand broadcast Even Solomon, one of – if not – the first British Television drama to feature a trans character. At a time where positive representation for trans people was almost non-existent, Even Solomon offered a heartfelt depiction of the challenges faced by a trans woman in the late 70s, as well as a fascinating glimpse into the gender politics of the period. 

This special archive screening will be introduced with a talk by Kate Hutchinson (Wipe Out Transphobia) exploring the history of the representation of trans people in British media and will be followed by a discussion on the programme. 
This event is part of the Birmingham LGBT History Festival 2018 presented by SHOUT Festival/Birmingham LGBT, full details of the festival programme can be found online at
