Event Details


On top of all the difficulties we face in our day-today lives, we can sometimes be our own worst enemy by forgetting to practice self-care. Join trans meditation teacher, Martin Vitorino of InsightLA and the Trans* Lounge as we take time to flip the script and help you to become a better friend to yourself, through indulging and nurturing your mind and heart. In this 90-minute workshop you'll get to experience a sound bath and practice mindfulness meditations for your heart, body and soul. Come give yourself some care. You deserve it!

Meditation is an opportunity to be mindful of what is happening in the present moment and be kind to ourselves, regardless of how we might be thinking or feeling. It is also a way to explore offering ourselves tenderness and compassion.

In this restorative workshop there will be a lightly guided meditation, opportunities to share your experience of transition – both the challenges and the celebrations – in larger group discussion and/or in small groups, and a restorative and healing sound bath. You'll have a chance to rest in the soothing sounds of a handpan performance by Krista Benson.

Regardless of where you are in your gender journey, this is a place to let go and just be!

Instructors: Martin Vitorino & Krista Benson

Trans* Lounge

The Trans Lounge is a trailblazing new series of educational and empowerment workshops, labs, events and groups aimed at serving the needs of all transgender individuals in all aspects of their journey toward self-discovery and acceptance.

Trans Lounge programming will include: make-up classes, hairstyling classes, voice-feminization labs, coming out groups, trans-related legal workshops, personal growth and empowerment workshops, community building networking events, issue-driven discussion labs and other many other events, all of which are relevant to all aspects of the trans community.

How will the Trans Lounge work?
Unlike other education and empowerment themed programs, the Trans Lounge will depend upon its participants to determine and guide which programming is offered. To accomplish this, participants must first register as a member of the Trans Lounge by visiting our online hub at TransLounge.org. Becoming a member of the Trans Lounge is free to all trans-identified individuals who wish to join. 


Once registered, Trans Lounge member will have access to the Trans Lounge Members Only area within the Center’s website. That is where members will find descriptions and information about our library free workshops, labs groups and events. Once there, members are asked to review all of the various programs and rate them all based on their level of interest. Member’s interest rating options will range from: “Not Interested”, “Maybe/Maybe Not”, “Moderately Interested”, to “Very Interested – Sign Me Up.” Trans Lounge administrators will monitor all the member ratings and will use this data to determine which programs will be scheduled in order to meet the membership’s greatest needs and interests.

At this point, administrators will contact the instructors to schedule those programs that the membership has expressed the greatest interest in. Programming dates/times will be determined based on instructor’s availability as well as the member’s availability guidelines (which they are asked to provide as part of the registration process). Once a program has been scheduled, those members who expressed the highest level of interest will be given first priority to RSVP/enroll in the program. Once those members have had time to RSVP (72-hours), the entire membership will be informed about the program and all other members will be able to enroll until the program reaches its enrollment maximum.

All workshops and labs will be programmed in this manner, so to ensure strong attendance and maximum utilization of what each program has to offer for the membership. This also ensures that our instructors will enjoy presenting their programs for optimal sized audiences.

In addition, the Trans Lounge will also present on-going social and support groups and short-term, topic-driven salons. Groups and salons will include: coming out to self, coming out to the one’s we love, living with HIV-AIDS, embracing your femininity/masculinity, embracing faith, how to love and support the non-trans people we love and support, how T can build community with LGB people, etc.
