TRANScend Retreat 2023

Donation protected
TRANScend Retreat is BACK and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome our trans and genderqueer community back to Saratoga Springs this year!!!
October 13th- 15th.

We will have a lot more details to share over the next month. Our core organizers are working hard to plan this year's retreat. Registration Drops on August 19th. We must have the funds to support this critical work and we need your support today with a donation.

This will help us secure our venue and to pay the team of organizers, who are a majority Black TGNC community leaders.

Any amount of coins is appreciated and because of your support we have been able to do this for six years now!!!

It has enabled us to pay all folks involved with our retreats, scholarship anyone who needs financial support, and in 2022 we were able to fly 14 black trans women from the south to join us for our annual retreat, through our Muhlaysia Booker Travel Fund (MBTF).

This grassroots fundraising is integral to our ability to build coalitions across our varying and diverse communities and uplift and center trans leadership.

Please help us today and donate, share, and help us get the word out that TRANScend Retreat is BACK in 2023!!!

TRANScend Retreat is designed for and by transgender and genderqueer folks. We build community with one another by deepening our ability to self-organize, create paths of resilience, redefine resistance, heal, socialize and further develop our social justice movements.

Through workshops and rituals we empower each other by centering the needs of our community, which includes, focusing on mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health as pivotal aspects of strong leadership. We know that both self and community care are critical to our wellness; so there will be plenty of time to relax, rejuvenate, laugh and dance under the stars.

TRANScend prioritizes Black, Indigenous, and people of color in our leadership and at our retreat. Our organizers are 84% BIPOC, 60% Trans, and 40% Genderqueer.

TRANScend works very hard to make our spaces more financially accessible and understands the disparities inherent within our highly racialized society. Therefore our scholarship program provides 70% of its funding to BIPOC.
Having this financial support will ensure TRANScend Retreat is able to serve a deeply diverse group of folks across lines of race, ethnicity, gender, and class. It is more important now than ever for trans and genderqueer folks to have this safe space to come together as community to organize and retreat!
