24 Oct Get Ready for the 7th Annual OCIYU Drag Show – With Familia: TQLM
We are excited to announce that ticket sales for our annual drag show are now on sale! This year’s show is titled, Soy Perra y Muerdo, and will once again be hosted by WTF Fridays at Shark Club in Costa Mesa on November 13, 2015.
The best part is that all proceeds from this year’s show will be used to support a Post-Detention Assistance Fund for undocumented trans women.
It’s no secret that undocumented trans women experience horrific abuse and trauma within immigration detention centers. This is why organizations like Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement and OCIYU have led the call locally and nationally for an end to the detention and deportations of ALL trans women, and backed up this call by supporting efforts to release individuals currently in detention in case by case strategies.
However challenges don’t end when someone is released from detention. Systemic discrimination and transphobia make finding work, medical assistance, and housing especially difficult for undocumented trans women.
We hope to see you there, and provide you with another amazing show.
When: November 13, 2015 | Doors Open @ 9:30 PM
Where: WTF Fridays @ Shark Club | 841 Baker St, Costa Mesa, CA 92626
