Event Details

TRANScend is a one-of-kind three day gathering created for and by trans and gender queer people. We are creating a container to share our experiences, find common ground, and raise our collective voices. This is especially important in the Trump-era, the threats are real. Our trans sisters of color are being murdered, undocumented queers deported, suicide is at an all time high in our community, and trans youth unable to use bathrooms that correspond with their gender. We will pull from, and build upon, the rich history of work that has been done, and solidify new actions. We also believe that self-care is highly important, so there will also be plenty of time to relax, rejuvenate, and dance under the stars. There is an organizing team that plans this event – please get in touch with lead organizer Spring if you are interested in being involved.
