Transgender Week of Visibility Recap

Posted in: Uncategorized

The LGBTQ Center Long Beach was proud to present Transgender Week of Visibility 2022, a week-long series of events that highlighted empowered, and celebrated our local trans and gender expansive community! These events came at the perfect time for us to re-connect with our community again by being able safely have these events in-person. Thank you to our Health Services team, Community Outreach and Operations team, our incredible volunteers and, of course, our community for making these events so successful and joyous. Please enjoy some photos from our Transgender Week of Visibility events below!

Clothing Closet at The Center

A gender affirming clothing & accessory closet for our transgender and gender-expansive community, where our community members were able to swap, exchange, or grab free affirming clothing and essential items! 

Our week long series of events all led to our main event on Transgender Day of Visibility: Gender Wonder Fest!
Our community event held at Bixby Park where we were able to gather to celebrate and uplift the transgender and gender expansive community in Long Beach! We had a resource fair featuring our friends at APLA Health, Bienestar, The [email protected] Coalition, Black AIDS Institute, and over 20+ more! We also had live entertainment featuring ZAZA, Lola Glenn, Electra Lakill, Aaliyah Ann Daniels, and Someday Jane! Thank you to all our resource booths, performers, and volunteers who made this event what it was. We were honored to have the opportunity to connect and share space with our community.
