To raise awareness and education about the trans community and the issues facing them.
Often when discussing the LGBTQ community, the “T” (transgender) is often ignored. By raising awareness about the trans community, the campus will be better informed and supportive of the needs of trans students. This event will occur for four days in the USU. Each day will feature different activities and close with; Transgender and Transcendent: An Evening with Missy Parker, which is a comedy, musical, storytelling show performed by multi-award winning transgender performer, Missy Parker.
