TRANScend: A Retreat for Trans and Genderqueer Folks 
October 5 - 7, 2018 

TRANScend is a gathering specifically designed for and by Trans and Genderqueer folks to teach each other, self-organize, create paths of resilience, redefine resistance, heal, socialize and deepen our social justice movements. We need you to make a donation today to support this important event!

TRANScend prioritizes people of color (POC) in our leadership and at our retreat.  Our organizers are 84% POC, 50% Trans, and 50% Genderqueer.

TRANScend opened its 2018 registration season this July and already we are seeing the immediate need for scholarships. We want to make sure no member of our community is turned away due to lack of funds. In order for us to meet the financial needs of our Trans & Genderqueer community members, we need to raise these funds immediately. 

All funds raised will be used to support:

*Full and Partial scholarships for retreat attendees (70% awarded to POC) 


*Stipends for Workshop Presenters and Healers (prioritizing Trans women and POC)

Having this financial support will ensure TRANScend's 2nd Annual 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!

This year our theme focuses on “Revealing our Majick“, and being able to support our POC, Trans and Genderqueer community, would be such a powerful affirmation of our magick!!!

$125 covers a partial scholarship and $175 covers a full scholarship.
