About the Event:
TransFest 2023 is an initiative, to be celebrated each year, which seeks to influence our society in an authentic way using music, art, and culture as a way to assert our identities and connect positively with the community at large. The struggle for resistance and resilience of our human rights as TransGNB, Sex Workers, and diverse gender and gender expansive people and with gender-diverse identities in NYC has been amplified by the lack of exposure to the human side of our community.
We consider it of utmost importance and urgency to make visible, educate, and empower our communities, and above all build safe, cultural and visible spaces, thus be able to project in Queens, the importance of respect and recognition of lives.
The event gears to empower TransGNB, Sex Workers, and diverse gender and gender expansive people and with gender-diverse identities in NYC as well as sensitize our local community about the challenges that Transgender people face, such as, severe discrimination, stigma and symmetric inequality, lack of legal protection, poverty, harassment and stigma, anti-transgender violence, barriers to medical care, among many others.
