Trans Resistance 2022
2022 March & Festival FAQ
How do I purchase a ticket?
There is no need to purchase a ticket. The March and Festival are free and open to the public.
How long is the march route?
The march is 1.9 miles from end to end.
Where can I park?
Parking is not available at Cedar Square Park. Parking at Franklin Park is extremely limited, and exiting will be difficult once performers and vendors have arrived. We recommend ride-sharing, carpooling, or taking the T to Forest Hills (closest to Franklin Park) or Jackson Square (closest to Cedar Square Park) and walking the rest of the way if you are able.
You can also use a Bluebike for free on the day of the march using the code TRANSRESISTANCE2022. There isn't a Bluebikes docking station inside Franklin Park, but there are several located around the perimeter of the park. Visit the map on the Bluebikes app to find the closest one to you.
Will there be any food?
Yes! We are delighted to have a number of food trucks who will be featured at the event. Local food vendors will include Gourmet Kreyol, BonMe, Zaaki, Tacos Don Beto, and Ben & Jerry's. We will also have a water station and bottled water available.
What accessibility accommodations will be in place?
We will have sensory areas and 'chill-out' zones at the festival, as well as ASL interpreters for our performances. We will also have accessible restrooms. The march will be supported by mobility assistance, including access to golf carts. Volunteers will be clearly identifiable based on the color of their shirts.
When does the festival end?
Where can I find the lineup and schedule of performers?
The lineup is included on the infographic at the top of this page. It is also posted on our Instagram account, @transresistancema, along with a number of other updates.
How will you make sure everyone is safe?
We expect a fun, safe event. We have a team of trained marshals in place to protect participants during the march and throughout the festival. We also ask our attendees to practice community care, and to be courteous and considerate of others.
Will there be a livestream?
Yes. We will livestream as much of the event as we can on Instagram Live, internet connection depending.
