Broadly celebrates trans visibility with Brooklyn event featuring Big Freedia and Tourmaline

VICE’s Broadly will celebrate transgender visibility at a lavish event in Brooklyn at the end of this month, and you’re invited.

The event, taking place at Brooklyn’s Villain on Saturday 30th March, will host influencers, activists, and important voices in the LGBTQ community.

EUPHORIA, held at VICE’s industrial space at 307 Kent Ave, Brooklyn, will celebrate the joy of feeling authentically seen and the strides that have been made in the trans community and promises to have all the makings for a great Saturday, culminating in an epic dance party.

Lindsay Schupp, Editor in Chief of Broadly, told QWEERIST: “The lives and work of trans people are too often misrepresented or willfully ignored by media.

“We hope EUPHORIA moves us one step closer to greater visibility and accurate representation for all trans people, and we’re thrilled to celebrate and honor the rich history and vibrant voices of the trans community through this event.”

Attendees can experience open panel conversations with an incredible roster of LGBTQ advocates including performance artist, Alok, editor and non-binary advocate, Tyler Ford, and award-winning artist/filmmaker Tourmaline.

The discussion will be moderated by award-winning VICE journalist, Diana Tourjee. Take part in the event’s interactive installation highlighting trans history, visit a fair of trans-centred and trans-owned businesses, an interactive installation highlighting trans history as well as photo booths for that perfect Instagram post.

VICE will celebrate in tandem with the worldwide community as International Transgender Day of Visibility approaches on Sunday 31st March.

Tickets are available here.
