Trans 100 Launch Event Tomorrow

The 2013 Trans 100 is an inaugural overview of the breadth and diversity of work being done in, by, and for the transgender community across the United States.

The first effort of its kind, the list intends to shift the coverage of trans issues by focusing on the positive work being accomplished, and providing visibility to those typically underrepresented.

This positive recognition will rightfully occur on March 31st, the International Transgender Day of Visibility, and it will be telecast live and documented to be viewed and celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations in other regions and nations.

The launch will include remarks by special guests Janet Mock and Dr. Kortney Ryan Ziegler, live performances by Namoli Brennet and Joe Stevens, and will be hosted by KOKUMO.

This is a joint production of We Happy Trans, This is HOW, and Chicago House. The event will be free, but donations are encouraged and reservations are recommended. For sponsorship opportunities and media inquiries, please contact producer Jen Richards via
