Turn Up the Trans*mission: Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference

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 our show go directly to the performers/cast/crew.

Our 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.

A Stranger Sound: transgender coming-of-age performance

Arising from Berlin’s queer party scene, A Stranger Sound is a dark yet affirming transgender coming-of-age story. Through music and poetry, the show leads audiences to journey through “gender dysphoria and chemical ecstasy // chemical dysphoria and gender ecstasy… And glamour as a survival strategy.
Witness Darling Fitch during the only Philadelphia stop on their American tour, bringing an honest account of queer space: community, self-discovery, safety… But also addiction, escapism, narcissism, abuse, and self-harm.
With performances throughout Fitch’s first year of testosterone therapy, accumulating changes become evident, particularly through the juxtaposition of live/pre-recorded vocals. A Stranger Sound tells an ongoing story, physically and thematically revealing the ever-shifting nature of life.

FREE show.
Doors at 7.
