2021 Trans Beach Day
When transgender people are asked what we would do if we had one day with only trans people around, the answer is overwhelmingly the same - go swimming.
While heartbreaking, this is a problem with a solution. This August, TransAL is partnering with other local organizations to throw a Trans Beach Day. We'll create an oasis of security where trans folk across the region and beyond can come to relax and enjoy the simple freedoms of the salt, sand, and sea.
To do this, we're renting a house with a private beach. This will ensure we have a space just for us while also allowing many trans folk the opportunity to enjoy an extended vacation. We're looking to provide meals and supplies for the home as well as free beds to underprivileged members of our community.
To do this, we need your help. A $250 minimum sponsorship will assist in covering our expenses. In exchange, we'll post your logo on the MobPride website and social media, plus including it on a physical display at this year's Pride Fest in October.
Thank you so much for your attention to this community need. The transgender community has been under assault throughout the Southeast in recent times. Events like this can help fortify our community's resilience and restore exhausted individuals forced into being an activist for their own existence.
TransAL is an outreach program of MobPride designed to support Transgender and Non-Binary people in Mobile, Al and the surrounding Gulf Coast.
TransAL meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. Location is on the event and Facebook pages.
