From their gofundme page: Richmond TG Prom RICHMOND, VA
The TG Prom is an annual event for anyone who identifies in any way as trans* and for anyone who supports trans* identities. It seeks to continue providing a safe, non-judgemental, and fun space for trans* people and their allies to meet and make friends. It seeks to promote a culture that acknowledges and accepts without hierarchy or judgement all forms of trans* identity. It acknowledges and supports the right of trans* people to determine their own needs and seeks to provide financial assistance as much as possible in meeting those needs without condition. It seeks to provide a space that showcases trans* talent and performers who have far too often been overshadowed or represented by drag performances within the LGBT community. It seeks to promote a visible trans* community so that trans* identities may stop being a source of stigma and shame, so that dangerous stereotypes are shown to be untrue, and to attract more allies and supporters to trans* causes.

we are trying to raise money to secure and throw the TG Prom at the GCCR.
