Located at the corner of Gloucester and Church, Trans Space at Pride Week 2013 is a safe, inclusive, informative and non-judgemental environment located at the heart of the festival site. It provides information, and support to members of the Trans community, those who are questioning, or simply curious.
Trans Human Library @ Trans Space
Saturday and Sunday 2pm-8pm
This year we are having an amazing trans human library full off incredible and diverse “books”. The way in which it works is that individuals who would like to share their stories become “books”. They hang around the library (trans space) and wait to be “checked-out” by readers. In reality what happens is that the individual who is volunteering will get to have a 30-45 minute conversation with folks who are interested in learning from lived experience. Volunteers share their story and answer questions. We are looking for diverse trans folks and trans allies who are friends or family of trans individuals to be part of our library.
Trans Pride will also be participating in the Dyke March ( Saturday, June 29th. 2pm) and the Pride Parade ( Sunday, June 30th. 1pm). If you want to march with us, please contact us.
