Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit POP-UPs

TIES POP-UP

 TAP VA is working  with Equality Virginia to make sure everyone has access to the information and resources available at our statewide TIES (Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit), no matter where you live in Virginia. In the summer of 2019, we will bring TIES Pop-Ups to three locations across the state: Norfolk, Fairfax and Staunton. 

These events are much smaller versions of our statewide conference, but will still include:

–trans-affirming mental health & medical consultations

–name & gender marker change clinic

–employment readiness training

–how-to-tell-your-story advocacy workshop

–community organizations & resources

Transgender and gender diverse individuals, partners, parents, youth, and allies are welcome to attend. Below are event and registration details for each of the three TIES Pop-Ups. We hope to see you there!

Virginia TIES

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2019 -UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, 28, WESTHAMPTON WAY

RICHMOND, VA 23173

 

Every October, transgender and gender diverse folks are joined by friends, family, and allies for TIES (Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit). Last year, we welcomed more than 250 individuals identifying as trans or gender diverse who participated in the day’s programs alongside over 100 allies. 


Register now to reserve your spot!


The most important aspect of the TIES is community. To us, community means trust, solidarity, and a shared respect for people who are transgender and gender diverse. The summit is an opportunity to build that community – to learn from and with each other in a safe, welcoming, and empowering space. TIES offers information that is designed to meet the interests and needs of transgender and gender diverse individuals, partners, parents, youth, and allies to strengthen the trans community across Virginia!

2019 TRANSGENDER DAY OF VISIBILITY - MARCH 31, 2019

 

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.


2018 Transgender Day of Remembrance & Resilience

BUILDING BRIDGES WITHIN AND BEYOND THE HAMPTON ROADS' TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY,


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).
