The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce has generously dedicated an entire night’s stage to CTC this Midsommarfest to continue our work of building a trans-inclusive Andersonville! Our event Blooming Beyond the Binary: Midsommarfest Trans Stage Takeover will kick off Andersonville’s Midsommarfest weekend Friday, June 10th, 6-10pm.
Our hosts, Crocodile Lightning and Mz Mr, are excited to facilitate a magical two-part event: first, a premiere showing of trans advocacy mini-documentary “What’s in a name?” followed by a panel discussion with the cast and director and a neighborhood call to action, and second, a variety show featuring beloved Chicago-based trans artists, including Andersonville local KJ Whitehead, Imirregulargirl, Switchtheboiwonder, and more, with surprise appearances from a few of our favorite politicians. Each family-friendly performance will celebrate QUEER JOY, TRANS LIBERATION, & NONBINARY LOVE.
We will shower love upon our trans artists, open up about mental health, and promote our locally grown #HireTransNow initiative. Most importantly, we will have fun and foster cross-community connection. We will take this opportunity to also honor the life and legacy of CTC Board member and Andersonville leader Elise Malary.
