Transgender Carnival official launch

The Transgender Carnival website is officially launched today (22 October 2008); with the first Transgender Carnival itself scheduled to be hosted at Bird of Paradox on 16 November 2008.

The Transgender Carnival aims to recognize and celebrate the full spectrum of gender identities by providing a platform for all gender diverse voices.

The Carnival is open to all transsexual, transgendered, genderqueer, nongendered, gender non-conforming people, and anyone working in solidarity with us.

The format is similar to that of other carnivals and each month a different blogger will host it. Anyone can submit a link to a piece for consideration for inclusion.

Posts should not seek to disseminate hate speech or oppression, and nominations should be sent either directly to the host of the next carnival, or to [email protected]

The Transgender Carnival is currently accepting nominations for

(a) links to posts for inclusion in the first Transgender Carnival, and

(b) host sites for future Carnivals.
