We are delighted to announce the official launch of the Transgender Carnival website today (22 October 2008); with the first Transgender Carnival itself scheduled to be hosted at Bird of Paradox on 16 November 2008.
The Transgender Carnival aims to recognize and celebrate the full spectrum of gender identities by providing a platform for all our voices.
The Carnival is open to transsexual, transgendered, genderqueer, nongendered, gender non-conforming people, and anyone working in solidarity with us.
The format is similar to that of other carnivals and each month a different blogger will host it. Anyone can submit a link to a piece for consideration for inclusion.
Posts should not seek to disseminate hate speech or oppression and nominations should be sent either directly to the host of the next carnival, or to email@example.com
Schedule of Transgender Carnivals:
16 November 2008: Bird of Paradox
December 2008: Questioning Transphobia
January or February 2009 (to be confirmed): Sugarbutch Chronicles
The Transgender Carnival is currently accepting nominations for
(a) links to posts for inclusion in the first Transgender Carnival, and
(b) host sites for future Carnivals.
Please contact the organizers by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
