To mark Black Trans Visibility Celebration Week, Milwaukee-area activists are organizing events from March 27 through April 3 including a march and block party on March 27 at 1:00 p.m. 

The march is being organized by the Black Trans Womxn of The Black Rose Initiative and Sisters Helping Each other Battle Adversity, or SHEBA, and leaders including Ladi London and Elle Halo. Organizers say the goal of the event is to build “an inclusive movement to celebrate all Black Trans and Non Binary lives” and “have some serious conversations about how we can better support and protect the Black Trans Womxn in our lives.”

Elle Halo said organizers are collaborating with artists, community organizations, and advocates to build awareness for the support and safety of Black trans womxn.

“Black Trans Womxn deserve to be centered and have our safety mentally and physically be a community priority,” said Halo. “Black Trans Mxn deserve community support and visibility. Gender non-conforming BlPOC people deserve to be uplifted and seen and have the right to define themselves on their own terms.”

Virtual events and an awards ceremony will also be held in addition to the march. Organizers are calling for artists, volunteers, marshalls, and accessibility supporters to help as well as donations of cash and materials. Updates will be posted to the Black Trans Visibility Celebration Week Facebook event page.
