Fabulous activism in a pop-up nail salon!
Nail Transphobia tackles transphobia through nail art, it's fabulous activism! Founder Charlie Craggs travels around the UK with her pop up nail salon, giving people the chance to sit down and have a chat with a trans person, Charlie explains, "what I'm really trying to do with my campaign, as well as educate, is humanise the issue and show that trans people are just normal (actually pretty nice) people; I want people to go away with more than just a manicure, I want them to go away an ally. I'm trying to change hearts and minds a nail at a time."
Since setting up the campaign in 2013, Charlie has travelled around the UK nailing transphobia everywhere from prestigious institutions like the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Science Museum to the Festivals like Gay Pride London and Fringe Festival, and has collaborated with brands like Lush, Asos and Selfridges. Charlie has been featured in The Guardian, Teen Vougue, The Independent and The BBC, amoung many others and was ranked #1 on the Observer's 2016 New Radicals list. Charlie will be offering free manicures in exchange for a chat. There will be approximately 20 slots throughout the day, please arrive early.
