All the SHADE, DRAMA and PERSONAL ISSUES are put aside for one night of giving back! Boston's Legendary Drag Queens come to TOGETHER to raise money for an Organization that mean so much to their community!
This event will benefit Mass Trans Political Coalition. MTPC is an advocacy and educational organization that is a fiscally sponsored 501c3 non-profit with one full-time staff, active Board, dedicated volunteers, and statewide chapters. MTPC provides a consistent voice to key decision makers about the lives of transgender youth and adults and their families. While there are many legal, advocacy, and social organizations focused broadly on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community there are very few that are led by and created specifically for the transgender community and in Massachusetts MTPC is that organization.
The aim of MTPCs programming is to improve the lives of the Massachusetts transgender youth, adults, and their families by 1) organizing and empowering transgender people to advocate for themselves; 2) developing leadership within transgender communities through community education and opportunities; 3) educating the pubic, the media, and institutions about issues facing transgender communities; 4) increasing the awareness of policy makers about the needs of transgender communities; and 5) advocating for equal access through policy changes at the institutional, state, and local levels. This programming was created in direct response to the needs voiced to MTPC by transgender people through requests and further reiterated in the findings of a 2009 community needs survey conducted by MTPC.
Hosted by Lakia Mondale, with appearances by Ariel Gibbs, Miss Kris, Lotus Blossom, Isabella Cavallier, Ms. Tiffani Woods, Rainbow Frite, Liza Lott, Mizery, Raquel Blake, Aundrea Fierce and many more. For more information on this event, click here.
