Trans* Lounge Presents:
Creating Trans Oral Traditions: A Community Storytelling Experience

We often struggle to find enough written history of our chosen families. History texts may misgender, misinterpret, or miss us. Instead of relying on the written word, we can build on memories of the past through performance. Let’s better remember trans lives by sharing stories today!

On the week of Transgender Day of Remembrance, we will hold a storytelling circle with gender expansive community. Themes will be “Struggles and Triumphs” as attendees share knowledge purely from memory about other gender expansive people they know, know of, or once knew, and their connections, hardships, and achievements.

As bards of our living trans history, we will practice passing down knowledge and memory by word of mouth and through performance, not through the pen.

Those who wish to share are encouraged to do so without any notes or script but are absolutely welcome to practice what they’d like to say. This is customary to oral tradition!
