Hatred Will Never Silence Our Art


A bimonthly celebration of

trans/genderqueer/intersex artists

Los Angeles, CA: "Trans/Giving," a bimonthly showcase and display of art, music, performance, and literature from trans/genderqueer/intersexed artists starts Friday, November 21, at 7:30 at the Hollywood Recovery Center at 6838 Sunset Blvd., LA CA 90028. This is the only event of its kind in Southern California, and one of the few events in the country where trans/genderqueer/intersexed artists can perform, work with each other and present opportunities to


Trans/Giving happens the night after the Transgender Day of Remembrance, and was conceived after yet another night thinking about the misconceptions and violence that would destroy the transgendered/transsexual/intersexed/genderqueer community. Depictions in the media have been incorrect at best, and at worst foster the

impression that members of our community are less than human.

Trans/Giving is a bimonthly performance series in Los Angeles that will function as both showcase space for trans/genderqueer/intersexed artists, but also as a space to try out new ideas, and directly address any sort of performance concerns they might have.

The kickoff lineup of artists and performers include: artist and comedian Scott Coyne, musician Alexander TG, classical and Klezmer

soloist Razi Michael, animator/illustrator Krista B., jazz pianist Lauren Steely, performance artist Talia Bettcher, musician/performance

artist Sumiko Braun photographer Gavriel Reichen, poet Ely J., cartoonist Akai Tsubasa, and poet/musician ryka aoki de la cruz. On the

turntables will be DJ Drat.

What makes Trans/Giving different is its focus on trans/genderqueer/intersexed people not as activists—but as artists. With all of our struggling, with all of our protests and tears,

it is even more important that art and artists in our community be heard.

Trans/Giving believes that the strongest statement we can make as artists is simply through our art. When we show our poetry, our

wit, our music, our images...we become luminous... and maybe people will think twice before wanting to stamp us out.

This event is all ages, alcohol and drug free, but pizza, soda, and cookies inclusive. Suggested donation is five dollars, but no one

will be turned away for lack of funds.

For more information, please email ryka aoki de la cruz at
