Resistance has a beat: loud, soft, hard, sweet. Let’s love to a soundtrack to lift us, move us to action, and keep us steady in tough times.

Tenderfest 2.0 is an evening of trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and genderqueer (TGNCNBGQ) dance and musical performances to celebrate trans people of color loving and getting free in real time.

Can’t get enough? Come to our Cultural Resistance QTPOC Maker Lab at LOL on Sunday, February 11th, 12pm-3pm for tender free arts activities <3


**This show involves some standing (we’ll have chairs for folks who need) and walking through 3 venues across the newly #Liberated23rdAve complex, with the bulk of the show seated at EastSide Arts Alliance’s Cultural Center across the street.
