Moxy from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.“The afterparty is a really big deal,” says Hunt, who is overseeing the party. “We have to actually have the fun outside of the learning.

The party provides a place for people to feel safe and secure, and to shake it loose after a long day of education. Trans Pride is a group of people who care about others, who want to bring people together, and want to educate everybody about trans people — and then have a good time.”Hunt says Trans Pride is important because it provides a platform for community members, offering an alternative to the way trans people are portrayed in the media or misrepresented by anti-LGBTQ politicians and conservative interests.“If you’ve never met a trans person, how do you know that we can do everything you can do?” she says. “It’s always this warped version: we’re overly fetishized, we’re overly sexualized, always drilled down to private parts and looks and appeal.“We haven’t been out here long enough, visibly in a positive light for people to understand.

And I think maybe in a few years, maybe as more people work with, understand openly, love openly, show allyship [with us], we’re going to be [treated] just like everybody else.”Trans Pride DC is Saturday, May 18, from 9:30 a.m.
