We are Trans Fest Stockholm. We are an organisation for and by trans and gender diverse people and our allies. We aspire to create positive, inclusive and empowering celebrations of trans and gender diverse culture and community.
Trans Fest Stockholm is organised entirely by volunteers. Please come and join us if you feel moved by the mission! Your ideas and energy are welcome, and you can contribute at any level, from setting up chairs and projection screens, to planning workshops, to serving on the board!
Trans Fest Stockholm (then called Trans Film Fest Stockholm) was founded by a small group of people based in Stockholm, Sweden who came together to create a one-day film festival marking Trans Day of Remembrance in November 2015.
Our goal was to create a free trans community film festival that would be a positive, empowering safer space for trans and gender diverse people and our allies. Since then, our plans and ambitions have grown and we have branched out into different community events and activities for our local trans community.
It is our hope to collaborate with many different groups and organisations to create positive, inclusive & empowering celebrations of trans and gender-diverse visibility, culture and community.
Up until the pandemic, we hosted three major community events each year – Trans Film Fest Stockholm in November to celebrate Trans Day of remembrance, Trans Culture festival marking Trans Day of Visibility in March and Transfesten during Stockholm Pride in late July/early August. We also hosted brunches, picnics, mingles, workshops and more! During the pandemic, we met online to hold workshops and show films.
Now, in 2022, we are beginning to meet ‘In Real Life’ again, though we will be maintaining some online events to serve those who live too far away from Stockholm.
We will be kicking off with Transfesten during Stockholm Pride, and are holding regular brunches – with various themes (if you have suggestions, please get in touch! Our email is: email@example.com )
Thank you for your continued support.
