Trans Winter Wonderland

I am Li, a Black Brazilian Non-binary person and LGBTQ+ activist based in London. Being part of the trans community means I often encounter awful Christmas stories from my trans siblings from all over the world. Everything from being misgendered to being completely isolated from their direct family's Christmas celebrations.

Brazil is the most dangerous country for LGBTQ+ people, specially trans people. But even though I live in the UK I still witness a lot of transphobia and violence towards the trans community.

This Christmas I am putting together a space where young (18-25) trans people can get together, have fun, eat good food and be there for each other. A space where we feel loved, accepted and safe, to tackle trans isolation during the Christmas season. The day will be composed of activities such as workshops and clothes swap.

This event is being organised by a trans person for trans people and it is really important that tickets remain free. I need your help to make this  day possible and accessible.

Here's a breakdown of the budget:

£350 for venue
£200 for food and party supplies (eg. workshop materials)
£100 contingency 

Please donate and share with your friends and family. 

Thank you so much and lots of love,
