We love connecting with others in our trans and gender diverse communities! In each tour location we will also be hosting an evening drop in and meet and greet gathering for trans and gender diverse youth, adults, families and allies as a way to talk with you, share information, resources, stories and make art together. Feel free to bring your favorite snack or art supplies if you have some to share.

Our workshops, presentations and events take place on land that we reside on as visitors, guests and settlers.
Holding our trans and gender diverse communities in thought - we send love, care, honor and pay respect to those who came before us, to those who are not with us today and to those who will follow us into the future. It is our gender diverse beings who have set up the road map, guidance and grounding which enables us to be able to work and speak in public spaces. We thank you.
