Current Exhibit: ‘Sharing Our Strength,’ by Transcend the Binary

Smiley face

  • The event will showcase the community-led research initiative, ‘Finding Our Strength,’ a collaboration between data analysis partners and the University of Michigan. Over 316 transgender/gender-expansive community members shared with their experiences regarding stress and worry over bathrooms, discrimination in the workplace, as well as experiences receiving healthcare. The stress our community faces is real. It is pervasive. But what also shined through was the community’s strength and brilliant resiliency.

  • We CELEBRATE this strength through a guided walk through of our research findings, followed by LIVE COMMUNITY PERFORMANCES of local tg/nb musicians, poets and spoken word artists, such as Daisy from Flower Girl, the Daisys, the Womb and more!
    Together, we can start a collaborative conversation about how to tackle these complex disparities, as well as strengthen our resolve, resiliency, and strength. Visit for more information on this event.
