Trans Voices Festival 2023

The year 2020 was filled with unprecedented events and historical challenges. For many of us there have been many changes and ways to adapt as we attempt to continue to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Trans Voices Festival Steering Committee has chosen a new date to better accommodate the festival’s workshops, attendees, and all those involved.  

We continue moving forward with the same enthusiasm and passion that first brought us together.  Our commitment to you is unwavering in providing a safe, exciting, and fulfilling experience.  We appreciate the incredible interest and support from all of you and the community at large.


The Trans Voices Festival, a virtual and in-person festival organized by trans community members and allies, will support transgender, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, agender, two spirit, and intersex people through a professional & peer-led workshop festival in Portland, Oregon. We will celebrate and empower trans and nonbinary voices through singing out, speaking out, and educating in a supportive environment.


Guided by values of social and gender justice, inclusion, and accessibility, the Trans Voices Festival supports all individuals dwelling in the rich intersectionality of identity in our various communities by sharing transgender artistic expression. We seek to elevate the voices of trans and non-binary people as teachers, experts, and leaders. Trans Voices Festival is a brave space for inspiration, discovery, and elation. Through creating community with each other we reduce isolation and facilitate social change.
