It’s Trans Awareness Week!

It’s Trans Awareness Week and the fine folks at Diversity Alliance of Puget Sound have put together a calendar listing all the things going on this week in the area.

It all leads up to Transgender Day of Remembrance events happening this weekend. On Saturday, Nov 19th, Tacoma will hold a TDOR event from 3pm to 5pm at ALMA, 1322 South Fawcett Avenue. More info at the FB invite: https://www.facebook.com/events/458102579547891/

On Sunday, Nov 20th, a similar event will be held from 6pm to 9pm in Seattle at University Unitarian Church, 6556 35th Ave NE. For more information on that event, go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/419955883628727/

Via their Instagram, some info on this year’s remembrance events:

This year we’ve decided to move away from the trauma bonding model and toward a community discussion/education model. We will be having discussions on the underlying systematic harms that lead to anti-trans violence, as well as, discussing the difficulties we face as trans and gender diverse individuals attempting to navigating these systems.

We will give space after each event to share space with one another and decompress as a community.

If you are interested in being part of either live discussion, or would like to learn more, please reach out to oliver@diversityallianceofthepugetsound.org for Tacoma or astro@diversityallianceofthepugetsound.org for Seattle.
