2018 Transgender Informational & Educational Seminar - TIES
After the overwhelming success of last year's TDOV, we invite you back for our second annual Hampton Roads Trans Day of Visibility, where all can come together and celebrate the abilities of our local trans and gender non-conforming artists and talent!
This year we have decided to highlight our long history of existence as trans individuals, and our push to continue to be visible today even as the Trump administration is seeking to erase us from the records and make us invisible to society. #wontbeerased
Art and creativity are natural expressions of life. On TDOV 2019, we seek to elevate and showcase the art and talents of the trans community, empowering and celebrating trans individuals, and spreading knowledge of trans issues to the public.
TAPVA is working hard to help transgender and gender nonconforming people (including veterans) out of homelessness and other unfortunate situations.
•Winter is coming and we have many clients who need clothing to stay warm! ❄️☃️❄️
•Our clients also need clothing for interviews and for those new jobs that require a certain dress code.
•Many stores create a shopping stress! It can hard to try on clothes for a trans person in a store with gender specific fitting rooms. Thrift stores do not create this issue!
A few dollars can go far!
•$1 gets a client a sweater or winter accessories!
•$5 dollars could get a client a bag of winter clothes or 1 coat and a pair of boots!
•$10 dollars can get our clients a bag of winter clothes, a coat and boots!
•$20 dollars can help us clothe 3 clients with winter essentials!
If you can’t afford to give, then please share this anywhere you think it will help! We also accept gently used clothing donations!

Please join us on Tuesday, November 20, 7PM for an annual celebration of transgender lives that have been lost too soon and in our hope for the future. Through speakers, art, music, and community-- we will join together to celebrate and remember our friends and family, as well as learn how to be better advocates and allies for trans people, especially trans people of color who face violence and discrimination at disproportionate rates. Please join us as we stand in solidarity and hope.
The event will begin promptly at 7:00pm at New Life Metropolitan Community Church of Hampton Roads, VA (1000 Sunset Drive, Norfolk, VA).
