Turn Up the Trans*mission // November 2018!

Combining trans* advocacy with live performance, Turn Up the Trans*mission is a variety show with no equal. Including burlesque, drag, live-singing, spoken word, and other performance styles, this varied collection of artists has a purpose. Community building and visibility are two main goals of the show, and as such, all donations to this show go directly to the performers/cast/crew.

This programming aims to create a space for trans* identified performers to express their art without fear of prejudice. We are here to create awareness and share our experiences to break down barriers of bigotry. Turn Up the Trans*mission has featured local and visiting transgender and/or non-binary and/or gender non-conforming artists, and strives to introduce new performers to their lineup every show.
