Be part of the audience or present and witness these fierce trans and gender non-conforming folks share their experiences of navigating rigid gender norms and expectations, as well as intersecting race, class, age, disability, and sexuality identities.

SUBMISSIONS:
Everyone is invited to submit a performance piece, spoken word, story, or perspective! Under 7 minutes and not ‘phobic or racist.
Send a clip or draft by NOVEMBER 14 to draws@wisc.edu and we’ll get you on the program!!

VIGIL:
After the monologues, join us and the Mad City Sisters to honor the trans and gender-variant people who have lost their lives to violent hatred and oppression this year at the Light Vigil on Capitol Square (near Mifflin and Carroll) after the event.
