As a teacher and theatre maker, Lyndsay Muir is a confident communicator. As a trans woman she knows communication can be "a bit tricky", so she came up with the idea of Tea with Trans. Lyndsay is a senior lecturer at Bishop Grosseteste University, where she teaches on the undergraduate applied drama degree programme and leads the PGCE Secondary Drama course in initial teacher education. With colleagues in the school of Teacher Development she has researched the impact of 'Diversity Week' and she is working towards a Professional Doctorate at Manchester University, with practice centred research around applied theatre with trans people. She is a member of the Adam World Choir, an online community of trans and non-binary people who form a 'digital chorus' for the National Theatre Scotland's production of Adam. (Edinburgh Festival August 2017 and beyond). She's interested in how to creatively orchestrate face to face conversations with trans people as a vehicle towards demystifying trans identities.
