Trans Pride Ventura County Events Recap

Trans Game Night

This all ages event featured games, trivia, Queer-aoke, and the highlight of the night was the wonderful Cooper the Queen hosting drag bingo!

Thanks to everyone who joined us to help make it a fun and memorable event! Huge thanks to Ventura Pride Pirates and the great folks at Ventura College for hosting the event on the Ventura College campus, and to D Thompson who filled in late in the game to coordinate and run this event!

Trans Day of Visibility Dedication Ceremony

Join us for a dedication ceremony in downtown Ventura to recognize Transgender Day of Visibility and the transgender community in Ventura County. Members from the City and County will pledge their support for gender diverse members of Ventura County and their commitment to ensuring equitable access to important healthcare and support services.

A Hateful Homicide Q&A

Join friend of The Transverse Mallery Jenna Robinson as she shares her podcast show "A Hateful Homicide" and leads a discussion on the importance of visibility for the trans community as well as the power of allyship. There will be great food and raffle prizes.

This is not a Trans Pride Ventura/The Transverse event, but rather put on by the great folks at the CLU Pride student club.
