The Gender & Family Project presents A Night of a Thousand Genders

Support transgender youth and families at the fifth annual A Night of a Thousand Genders, an inspiring evening of performances and solidarity, on Monday, April 16.

A Night of a Thousand Genders benefits the Gender & Family Project (GFP), which empowers youth, families and communities by providing gender affirmative services, training and research. The Gender & Family Project promotes gender inclusivity as a form of social justice in all the systems involved in the life of the family. Join the movement for gender justice and family acceptance. Tickets for only the after-party are also available. Buy tickets here.

From 5:00 pm until 8:30pm, OPEN Finance volunteers will assist The Gender & Family Project with various tasks needed during the gala. Volunteers will assist with guest check-in, greeters/directional routers, auction spotters, and after-party change-over. At the conclusion of the gala dinner (8:30 pm), volunteers are welcome to enjoy the after-party with no further responsibilities. Register here to volunteer.
