Self-ish is a women and trans open mic launched in Paris in May 2016. Why? Because it’s about time we have a space of our own to express our-selves and share our stories.

Anyone is invited to attend but the mic is exclusively open to women and trans folk (anyone who doesn’t identify as cisgender – see Q&A).

So come along and share your poetry, songs, craft, prose or performance: let’s be Self-ish!

Anyone who is non cisgendered (or “cis”). Here’s a perfect little graphic to illustrate:!

Yes of course.

☞ I am a cis dude, can I come and complain about how I am not included in this open mic?
