What’s in a name….

“Names are an incredibly important part of everyones identity. They carry deep personal, cultural, familial, and historical connections. They also give us a sense of who we are, the communities in which we belong, and our place in the world.”

Showmen is the name of our community. Identity is something we are very passionate about at F4FHQ. Our identity is something that we are pushing to be better understood. As a name Showmen should have a capital letter when it is written down. The name Showmen should be recognised in spaces where our community are included and are being spoken about. Showmen are a travelling community but Showmen are not the same community as Travellers. Names of communities are not interchangeable! We don’t prefer to be called Showmen WE ARE SHOWMEN 🎠
