Share your talent

First Event celebrates the amazing talent within the transgender community, with an art show and an open mic.

Translations Art Show (Friday and Saturday)

The Art Show at First Event exclusively features the work of transgender and gender non-conforming artists. The show runs Friday and Saturday of the conference, with a cocktail reception from 4-6pm on Friday. Artists are encouraged, but not required, to attend the reception to speak with guests about their work.

Open Mic

The open mic runs from 9:30-11pm on Saturday night. All performers welcome – sing, play an instrument, tell a story, share a poem. We’ll provide the mic, the stage, and a keyboard; you provide any additional instruments. Please keep instrument setup to a minimum.

If you are interested in performing, please email the following information to Linda:

  • Name

  • If music, which instrument?
