Trans Resistance March & Festival 2024
Planning for Trans Resistance 2024 is underway, and more information will be available here beginning in February and March of 2024. Please check back soon!
In the meantime, make sure you check out our Instagram for updates, and browse the materials below from Trans Resistance 2023 for a sense of the event.
2023 March & Festival
The march will be led by a truck and motorcyles from Moving Violations. A team of trained marshals will assist us in staying safe and following the route. The BPD is aware of our plans and will be at Stonybrook at 11 am. Our notifying them is required by law to host our event. Please disengage unless spoken to; if you don't feel comfortable or aren't a march leader, direct them to someone who is and follow the directions of the marshals and Trans Resistance leaders.
Marshals will be present at Franklin Park Playstead to assist with any safety needs.
This year, we hired 10 unarmed, LGBTQIA2S+-identified security guards. We experienced a range of harassment and threats this year, and our insurance required security to grant our policy.
Please hydrate, eat, dress comfortably and for the weather, and have fun!
For safety reasons, we cannot permit anyone to approach the stage or dressing room unless they are performers.
We are very sorry to announce that we will not have golf carts this year. We will have two different sensory tents, ASL interpreters, an accessibility viewing area, mental health assistance, and accessibly tabling.
Health & Wellness
PLEASE WEAR MASKS whenever possible! This is community care. It makes it possible for our siblings with disabilites to safely attend. We will have masks available for you!
Mental Health Support
A nonbinary licensed mental health professional will be available throughout the festival for attendees who need support. While not therapy, this person could be a resource if you'd like help navigating something that's coming up for you during the event. To access this resource, check in at the Mental Health Support sign near the sensory area. You can also check out several mental health organizations for ongoing therapy and support as part of our festival!
