Delighted to be invited to an “Outing” by Dartington Arts, Totnes, Billie and I cooked up something special. Credit goes to Billie for finding this ideal song Masculine Women & Feminine Men, which we suitably romped through to contribute to Dartington’s first week-long LGBTQ+ festival. We hope to record the track soon.

We were also fortunate enough to be involved in the photoshoot to promote the event. Photography by Aubrey Simpson

I was also lucky enough this month to host a gender workshop at Ziferblat Co-working space. Thanks to all who attended and stay tuned for more workshops in the future.

A new song I wrote in response to Nothing’s Binary, which asks “see me”, whilst Spell Out Your Name asks “show me”

MAY 17th 2017 (first posted on kimwei.com) 

Billy Bottle and I recorded this original song of mine, to co-incide with Exeter Pride (13.05.2017). It’s about being non-binary, but also celebrating LGTBQ+ as a whole. This goes out to anyone who seeks to be seen for who they truly are. When we accept each other, we love each other, and when we love each other we change the world.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the responses to this video on Facebook (6k views and 100 shares in less than a week) and thrilled that the message has been so deeply received. We believe that expanding beyond the binary notion of gender is not just relevant to those who identify as trans, but to everyone, because we are all affected by the expectations of a society that sees gender in binary.

Now it’s time to take the phrase “Nothing’s Binary” even further. We want to put on events, entitled “Nothing’s Binary”, which are celebrations of the full gender spectrum. We envisage a Post-Binary world in which anyone can freely inhabit any part of that spectrum and be seen, accepted and loved. Please get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
