Transgender Day of Empowerment


Join us in celebrating the rich diversity of San Diego’s transgender community on Friday, April 13th, 2018, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at The San Diego LGBT Community Center auditorium in Hillcrest (3909 Centre Street). This year’s program is will include trans speakers, entertainment, refreshments, community awards, and the announcement of the 4th Annual Tracie Jada O’Brien Transgender Student Scholarship recipients! This event is FREE and open to all.

This event venue is wheelchair accessible and ASL interpretation will be provided for the program.


Want to show your support for trans students in a real and tangible way? We invite you to donate to the Tracie Jada O’Brien Transgender Student Scholarship fund! With the help of people like you, last year we were able to award eleven scholarships to students attending schools from as nearby as San Diego City College to as far University of Chicago. Our scholarship students major in everything from Criminal Justice to Psychology. Each scholarship is $500, but a donation of any amount is welcome. As always, 100% of funds raised will go directly to the scholarship awards.

Those interested in donating to the scholarship can donate here and select “Trans Scholarship” under the “Donate to Program” Menu.

Thank you for giving these high-achieving students your support!
