Trans 100 Launch Event

The 2013 Trans 100 is an inaugural overview of the breadth and diversity of work being done in, by, and for the transgender community across the United States. The first effort of its kind, the list intends to shift the coverage of trans issues by focusing on the positive work being accomplished, and providing visibility to those typically underrepresented.

The launch will include remarks by special guests Janet Mock and Dr. Kortney Ryan Ziegler, live performances by Namoli Brennet and Joe Stevens, and will be hosted by KOKUMO. The list will be released on March 31st in order to coincide with the International Transgender Day of Visibility, and the event will be telecast live from Mayne Stage in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago and documented to be viewed and celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations in other regions and nations.

This is a joint production of We Happy Trans, This is HOW, Chicago House, and KOKUMOMEDIA. The event will be free, but donations are encouraged and reservations are recommended. For sponsorship opportunities and media inquiries, please contact producer Jen Richards via jen@WeHappyTrans.com.

For more about the origin and context of the list, see this interview with Jen, and this blog post by Toni D’Orsay.
