Community Leaders

First Event has always been the place to see and be seen, but we are stepping it up a big notch in 2020. There will be several great opportunities to meet incredible people who all have a very positive impact on the transgender community. Most of the action will be during the red carpet cocktail hours on Friday and Saturday night preceding the transFORMED fashion show and the banquet.

Here are just some of the people you’ll be able to meet at First Event 2020. Click on images for bios and to learn where to meet them.
