At a time when the trans community is a political punching bag and often marginalized even within the LGBT community, South Florida is a place for trans people to be louder and prouder than ever.

Thursday, March 31, is Transgender Day of Visibility. The world honors the achievements of trans people and showcases their work towards equality.

Hamburger Mary’s is hosting a night of food, entertainment, and creativity. Transinclusive Group is organizing the event to highlight the resilience and talents of the local trans community. The night will include performances of spoken word, singing, poetry, dance, drag, music, and more.

“We ask that our allies continue to stand in solidarity and support our efforts so all transgender and LGBQ+ individuals can achieve their human potential equally and equitably by ending discrimination and stigma,” Transinclusive Group Executive Director Tatiana Williams said.

They are producing the event along with many other community leaders, including community partners including Arianna's Center, The McKenzie Project, TransSOCIAL, FLUX (AHF), Midland Medical, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, The Pride Center at Equality Park, SunServe, and The Hollywood LGBTQ+ Council.
