The Gallus of Catterick
The Gallus of Catterick is a local trans history project undertaken by Luna Morgana as part of Gossip Grrrl and culminated in a zine, featuring artwork from China, Erika Lara Leaman and Sal Harris.
The zine is about the remains of an ancient trans woman dug up near a roman fort in Catterick. It is thought she was a priestess of the cult of Cybele and the zine details what this would have meant.
There is very little record of this, and even less written by trans people. The aim of the zine was to have trans history recounted by a trans person. The text and artwork and the physical zines have all been made by trans femmes and trans women to mirror that this was a cult of trans women and trans femmes.
50% of the money from the zine is also given to Non-Binary Leeds solidarity fund, which is a local fund to help non-binary, trans and gender non-conforming people in need, as this is in keeping with the way the Galli lived.
