Transgender Dinner of Remembrance hosted by Trinity Church of Northborough

Transgender Dinner of Remembrance hosted by Trinity Church of Northborough

The Trinity Church of Northborough is hosting a Transgender Dinner of Remembrance Saturday, November 18th at 6pm. Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to honor all trans people who have lost their lives as a result of murder or suicide. Trinity Church of Northborough will show a brief movie and hold a memorial litany, followed by dinner with speaker Taj Smith.

The intent is to educate us about the plight of transgender people, and to learn how communities of faith can better include them.

Taj M. Smith graduated from Harvard Divinity School (HDS) with a Master of Divinity in 2016. He is a member of the United Church of Christ where he is invested in conversations that will expand hospitality to transgender and gender non-conforming people. Prior to attending HDS, he had another life as a singer/songwriter and a professional street performer. He sees no limit to the imagination and seeks out creative ways to advocate for justice, usually through artistic expression. He is an avid sci-fi lover and a longtime musician. He also really likes hats.

The event is free and open to the public. Donations to benefit Trinity Church's outreach to the LGBTQ community are welcome. RSVP appreciated but not required: email Trinitychurchnboro@gmail.com or call us at (508) 393-8156.

Starring:
Sam Graham Jones as Cathy Hiatt

DotOUT Harvest Mixer

Has Dorchester been overrun with plaid-clad hipsters? No, it's DotOUT's annual Harvest Mixer! It's also the ONE DAY of the year you can legitimately don your gayest flannel shirts and buff up those tan Timberlands for a wonderful fall afternoon—celebrating the season of sharing and giving thanks with your nearest and dearest and your friends at DotOUT.

Bring your straight friends or bring your LGBTQ posse or come alone-- it's Dorchester and all are welcome! Our friends at Ashmont Grill (Hey, Tara and Andrew!)—always warm and hospitable—are once again sharing their space with us. Can you say one adorable patio avec toasty fire pit perfect for canoodling and cuddling with your current (or new) cutie under fluffy blankies? (This space is so fabulous I'm importing a cutie for under-blankie-by-the-fire-smooches for this annual Dorchester event!) Hot or cold drinks are available at the cash bar, FABULOUS raffle prizes are available from our famous "leg-length" ticket purchase, while complimentary hot nibbles circulate!

--- AND ---

Last year, Dorchester peeps rocked the donation jar with their generous holiday spirit and a suggested $5 donation raising $786 for St. Mary's Center for Women and Children! With your love and generosity (and open wallets), we hope to beat last year's record with your participation in our live auction and raffle!

Out for Youth 2017

HONORING RAFFI FREEDMAN-GURSPAN AND THE NEW ENGLAND BALL COLLECTIVE:

Raffi Freedman-Gurspan is the Director of External Relations at the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), where she oversees public education and field organizing operations. She was the first openly transgender staffer to work at the White House where her duties included serving as LGBT Liaison. She was employed at NCTE prior as Policy Advisor for the Racial and Economic Justice Initiative; Legislative Director to former Representative Carl Sciortino in the Massachusetts House of Representatives; and LGBT Liaison for the City of Somerville. Raffi has also worked with the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition and Boston University in gender research work.

Boston’s House and Ball scene consists of a dynamic group of individuals who are students, youth workers, health care providers and activists by day and Runway Walkers by night. Historically, Balls are organized by members of local chapter Houses, but in 2009, BAGLY and The New England Ballroom Collective (NEBC) united multiple Houses to be represented by one organized collective.  The New England Houses that participate in the NEBC often collaborate to ensure that LGBTQ Youth of Color feel supported and valued, by organizing multiple events throughout the year
