Fertile Ground: Stories Rooted in Our Trauma

October 3, 2018

TransLatina Coalition Offices get directions

LGBT people have a disproportionate likelihood of experiencing personal traumas—everything from surviving assaults, becoming HIV-positive, or dealing with trauma associated with facing racism, immigrating without documentation, living in poverty, or simply being gender atypical. At this event queer, and particularly trans or gender nonconforming authors will talk about surviving trauma, why we write about it, and how it impacts our lives and informs our work. There will be an open mic portion of the program.
