LA Trans Queer Event Highlights of the Week

I received invitations to all of the following events and my reaction was … Dang! Our  Angeleno trans-queer community is abundantly thriving with art, culture and flavor! These are just a few of the events that I found interesting and highly recommend. If I go, I am going to dress nice, bring business cards and a good attitude to network my heart out!

How will you roll to the event and what are you bringing to the table? Beautiful eyes as a spectator is sufficient…just come!


Travel to Santa Monica tonight to see MONICA PALACIOS, the legend!
