London, England. The online program continues at the London Basque Society Euskal Elkartea: This Thursday, November 12th they will hold a Bertsolarism Workshop taught by Bertsolari Oihana Iguaran.   And next week on Friday, November 20th, coinciding with the Transgender Day of Remembrance, they will show the documentary My Big Little Samurai (2019), which will be followed by a discussion in collaboration with the Basque Studies Group of the Department of Modern Languages and Culture a the University of Liverpool.  The documentary tells the story of Ekai Lersundi, a trans boy from Ondarroa that committed suicide at the age of 16 when he was awaiting hormone treatment.  Ekai’s parents will participate along with other members of the community.

Both events are part of the offerings organized online by the London Basque club in response to the current situation caused by the pandemic.  By participating, you are also granted club membership for free, allowing you to take advantage of the benefit that it entails, all at no cost, but still supporting and reinforcing the online events carried out by the Basque club in the British capital.

We would like to stress that Bertsolari Oihana iguaran (Amasa-Villabona, 1991), will conduct this Thursday’s workshop.  She speaks English fluently and knows the Diaspora.  She has performed at Basque club in the United States as well as at festivals such as the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, as well as at Basque clubs and cities in Argentina, for instance presenting the Bertso Pilota show.
