Trans Soul Rebellion

March 20 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Title reads 'Trans Soul Rebellion - A trans day of visibility celebration' and is set against a multi-colored backdrop.

Trans Soul Rebellion is an all-ages celebration of local drag and music performances in honor of Transgender Day of Visibility.

Stop by Revelry Food+Music Hub on March 20 to centre the joy and resilience of the trans community, enjoy performances from local trans artists and performers, and build connections. Light finger foods will be provided, and non-alcoholic drinks and additional food may be purchased.

Gender affirming wear (transtape, binders, and bras) will be available free of charge. Monetary donations will be accepted at the door and will go directly to covering the costs of the event, as well as towards supporting future Trans Day of Visibility events. Non-perishable food will be provided through a sharing table on a ‘give what you can, take what you need’ basis. Merchandise from artists and performers will also be available for purchase.

Registration is not required.
