We spent the winter holidays rooting through archives, books, and interviews, looking to surface Calgary’s transgender history. If one considers gay and lesbian history hidden and underground, trans history seems to exist in the sub-basement. For that reason, it is crucial to discover. Our history is complex; we need to hear diverse narratives to generate a fulsome understanding of our community’s story.
That is why we are so delighted to be working with One Voice Chorus to present Transformation: A History of Calgary’s Transgender Community on Saturday, January 18th at the Central Libary, 7:30 PM. Part live music, part history presentation, we are mixing it up in the cold mid-winter. Tickets are on sale online: here, and there is a sliding scale option at the door. Come out for inspiration and history; please join us!
