We're back! All postponed December 19 Transmas tickets will be honored at our April 9 Benefit Concert for Trans Housing! (Please redeem December tickets through the recent confirmation email.)

Join us for a night of celebration and fellowship! This will be a special evening to bring together the community as we reflect over the years with our chosen family—our sisters, brothers, and gender non-conforming siblings.

All proceeds will go to two benefiting organizations: Black Trans Liberation and Bridges4Life. These organizations were founded and are led by Black trans women. 

Black Trans Liberation, an NYC organization founded by Qween Jean, aims to end the houseless crisis in trans communities. By supporting Trans people's right to housing, we can dismantle the current 35 year life expectancy of Black Trans people and prevent systemic oppression. Working with community partners, we empower and celebrate the TGNC community.

Bridges4Life, an organization founded by Tahtianna Fermin and based in Hackensack, New Jersey, is committed to helping the Transgender Non-Conforming Community; by providing services to children in the foster care system, young adults, and surviving sex workers.

Please Note:

There is limited space in the hall, so please reserve your ticket now! 

If you are able to donate, please consider making a suggested donation of $25 on our ticketing page. 

The concert will begin promptly at 8:00pm
