Q POP Productions

is a collective that organizes BIPOC centered Queer Pop-up events in the
Hudson Valley with a mission of spreading joy and healing as a means of resistance.

Trans Day of Remembrance is a national day to uplift the stories and lives of trans identified community members who have been lost through interpersonal and state sanctioned violence.  This year, we are collaborating to hold ritual space to hold the grief and trauma of dealing with this violence along with engaging the community in critical discussion on how we can counter it.


Join us in person at four locations(Newburgh, Beacon, Poughkeepsie and Kingston) to gather, be in community, hold space collectively and get active on how we can start to counter gender based violence in our communities!

Thank you to our collaborators. We love being in community with you:

Beacon LGBTQ Community

Newburgh LGBTQ Center

Awakening Trans Art Coalition

Poughkeepsie Queer Community

TRANS SPECTRUM

This year's Trans Day of Remembrance happens throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley in Beacon, Kingston, Newburgh and Poughkeepsie in a collective effort to:
 
  • Honor those killed due to anti-transgender violence
  • Read and remember the names of victims
  • Highlight our joy and resilience
  • Discuss actions we can take to educate our communities about ending violence toward transgender people, and
  • To model what collaborative, co-creative non-hierarchical community process can look like.
In Kingston, we'll create an altar space and have speakers from the Trans Spectrum, Awakening Trans Art Coalition and QPOP will read names and remembrances of those murdered.
