Online video meetup using Zoom, for the Seattle Trans & Nonbinary Community! Check-in with your fellow trans/nonbinary community members, say hi, hang out.
In this stay-at-home world, video meetups are becoming a wonderful way for many to combat social isolation, meet others, and build social support.
Please join if at all interested! This is new for all of us, so most of us will not know each other. If you are socially anxious, this is a good opportunity to see others in the community, and you can always drop off if it becomes too much. ☺️Find out more »
We are going through an extremely stressful situation and for some of us the stress of insecure finances, food, housing, and even just distance from those we love and care about can be a trigger for addictive behaviors, but there is help!

In honor of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, U.T.O.P.I.A. Seattle is proud to present a special online TransAction screening of the film 'Leitis in Waiting' followed by Talanoa with Leiti and Transgender activist Joleen Mataele who is featured in the film. "Leitis in Waiting" is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis, an intrepid group of native transgender women fighting a rising tide of religious fundamentalism and intolerance in their South Pacific Kingdom. The film follows Joey, a devout Catholic of noble descent, as she organizes an exuberant beauty pageant presided over by a princess, provides shelter and training for a young contestant rejected by her family, and spars with American-financed evangelicals threatening to resurrect colonial-era laws that would criminalize the leitis' lives. With unexpected humor and extraordinary access to the Kingdom's royals and religious leaders, Joey's emotional journey reveals what it means to be different in a society ruled by tradition, and what it takes to be accepted without forsaking who you are.
Please tune in to U.T.O.P.A. Seattle's facebook page or youtube channel on May 7, 2020 Thursday evening at 7pm to watch with us and hear from the amazing Joleen Mataele.Find out more »
