TransAction Gender Conference, Vegan Thanksgiving Day & Invisible Children Tour

By Eric S. Peterson
Posted // November 11,2010 - It’s Transgender Awareness Month and time for the TransAction Gender Conference. You can start the holiday season with a vegan Thanksgiving benefit dinner for a local animal sanctuary. Later, meet former child soldiers from Uganda to hear about their struggles to escape poverty and violence.

TransAction Gender Conference
Saturday, Nov. 13

This year’s TransAction Gender Conference is full of workshops and panels, including a presentation by radical queer artist Elisha Lim and an “Ask a Cisgender Person” event. If you don’t know what cisgender means, this is your chance to find out while also learning about issues affecting transgendered Utahns and their partners and families.
Westminster College, Gore Business School, 1840 S. 1300 East, Nov. 13, 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m., for more info e-mail transactionutah@gmail.com or visit UtahPrideCenter.org.

Vegan Thanksgiving Day

The Ching Family Farm is looking for hungry vegans to gather for its Thanksgiving Day feast and fundraiser to support its animal rescue and adoption efforts. This year’s smorgasbord will feature Nick Cooney, author and founder of the Humane League. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and younger, with $1 off with a donated blanket for the farm’s pigs.
Columbus Community Center, 2531 S. 400 East, 801-446-7741, Nov. 13, 4-9 p.m. ChingSanctuary.org

Invisible Children Tour
Multiple Events

The Invisible Children group has been advocating for years on behalf of child soldiers from war-torn Uganda. While the horrors of war may be a world away for most, the organization brings it closer to home through former child soldiers who speak about their experiences. Learn more about their struggle for survival and become aware of the still-devastating problem of child soldiers.
