Gifted storyteller, spoken word performer and writer Ivan Coyote performs at Brighton Festival for the first time. Revered by our Guest Director, Lemn Sissay, as one of the best storytellers anywhere, Ivan has an extraordinary ability to weave engaging and immersive tales that feel personal and warm but somehow leave you wanting to change the world. 

Ivan Coyote has won huge acclaim for taking on the personal and the political in beguiling and revealing stories about what it means to be trans and non-binary today. 

Having spent 25 years on the road, Ivan has been winning fans across the world by talking about gender identity, family, class and queer liberation with compassion, heart and a quick wit
