More about this event:

The show is called F to eMbody. Now it’s sixth year, F to eMbody brings you two of the most seasoned trans* male performers in the world; Athens Boys Choir and Rocco Katastrophe. These performers have created an event that is a celebration of trans art, identity and impact through spoken word, storytelling, and music. They have both had a hand in creating and changing transmasculine culture in this country, from their incredibly relatable and vulnerable way of capturing their experience through art and communication.

Athens Boys Choir has been rocking stages around the world since 2003. He is best known for his viral videos, including super hit FAGETTE, and his heart-on-the-sleeve spoken word.

Rocco Katastrophe has been on stages across the world since 1999 and has been going ever since with sensitive and intimate hip hop stylings. He is also the creator of Original Plumbing Magazine the world’s first print magazine for FTM culture.
