The celebration continues Saturday with a pop-up market from 4-8 p.m. in collaboration with The Big Gay Market and featuring A Room of One’s Own bookshop, Luma Hollow, Sturgeon Designs, Red Clover Tattoo Collective, Mel’s Crafty Critters, Rae Senarighi, and cookies from Girl Scout Troop #8187. Resources will also be available from Trans Medical Mutual Aid. From 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Trans Day of Visibility Pop-up Market will be MASKS REQUIRED. Masks will be required to enter and shop during this time; while we will provide disposable masks at the door, please bring your own to cut down on waste.

“As a trans and women-owned and operated brewery, it’s important to us to be visible in the community, and to celebrate other trans folks doing great things,” says Giant Jones Brewer and Co-Owner, Jessica Jones. “Being an out, trans person, and visible because of our business, means that we have the opportunity to highlight valuable roles trans people play in the community.”
