Trans/Giving is a unique, award-winning series that showcases the immense talent of transgender and genderqueer artists in Los Angeles and abroad.
Trans/Giving functions as both a showcase for experienced artists and as a space to try out new ideas and directly address the concerns of those who are new to performing. We understand that there is no single transgender community in any city, and with that in mind we strive to be a space where people from many different communities and backgrounds can connect and share their talents. This is the only event of its kind in Southern California, and one of the few events in the country where trans and genderqueer artists can perform, work with each other and discover opportunities to develop.
While some of our past artists have addressed gender issues directly, this is by no means a requirement — we are interested in sharing the best work of all members of our communities, whatever the theme. Trans/Giving believes that the strongest statement we can make as artists is simply through our art.
