Happy Tranny Day: a Vancouver first

New event celebrates gender diversity

Vancouver held its first Happy Tranny Day Apr 13 — and organizers are already brainstorming ideas for next year’s event.

Held at Heritage Hall on Main St, the event featured social activities in a safe and supportive space.

“It is intended to be a safe and supportive space for trans people, our partners, family and friends to come together and celebrate our courage, resilience and creativity,” says Tien Wee, who is spearheading the day-long celebration. “It is an environment where everyone can fully express their gender, and can socialize, connect and make new friends.”
