TDOR Zine Making and Potluck

November 20th is the International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). This is a day that is set aside to bring awareness to the violence faced by transgender people worldwide and to honor those who have lost their lives to this violence.

In past years, TransCollaborations has held a vigil to commemorate this day. We’ve found that the trans people who come to the vigils don’t feel that they get anything out of it. We often leave such events feeling disconnected and triggered.  In the interest of honoring both TDOR and our community, this year’s event will be a little different. Our goals are to foster a sense of solidarity and accountability in our community, and to come together to collaboratively create something tangible.

Therefore, this year TransCollaborations is hosting a zine making party and potluck on Wednesday, November 20th from 6pm to 9pm at the LGBT Resource Center (125 Grand Ave Ct). We will be creating zines that focus on community accountability, allyship, and story sharing. After working on our pieces for the zines, we will end the evening by coming together as a community for a potluck. Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share. See you there!

This event is free and open to the public. If you have any questions/concerns about this event, please email us at transcollaborations@gmail.com.
