Join us for a magical evening of celebrating community – TDoV 2017 on March 31st! Across the country and internationally there has been an increased visibility of our transgender and GNC communities. Despite increased national media visibility, 2016 goes on record as one of the most dangerous years for transgender and gender non-conforming people, with alarming rates of violence, homicides, and suicides - specifically impacting trans women of color and youth.
Special guest: Gigi Gorgeous
Also, don't miss the pre-party and screeing of Gigi's new film "This is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous" on 3/30. Get tickets here!

The International TDoV is an annual holiday celebrated around the world. The day is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments and victories of transgender & gender non-conforming people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives. The holiday was founded in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of LGBT holidays celebrating transgender people’s successes. Please find more information at http://tdov.org/
