Gender Justice Awards 2016

The 2016 Gender Justice Awards dinner will highlight and showcase the incredible activism and culture creation of trans and allied activists and artists who have made incredible strides for trans, gender queer, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people in the Pacific Northwest. This is the annual fundraiser for Gender Justice League to support our work throughout Washington to build community and fight for the human rights of trans, gender queer, gender non-conforming, and non-binary people.

We ask attendees to come prepared to make an additional donation if possible, tickets are priced to be as accessible as possible for our community and are intended to simply cover the cost of producing the event. We recognize not everyone who attends can give, at our ticket prices we expect to only “break even” for the event – we work to ensure that catering staff and performers are equitably paid. Additional Gifts will go directly to support Gender Justice League’s efforts including Trans Pride Seattle 2017, The Washington SAFE Alliance & Efforts to defeat anti-trans attacks, and our efforts to provide public education & training throughout the state.

Gender Justice League is committed to economic accessibility – 10% of seats (15 tickets) will be reserved for sliding scale attendance, additional tickets will be made available as they are sponsored. Please email if you are in need of a sliding scale ticket. Attendees can also sponsor one of these tickets to increase the pool of sliding scale tickets. We offer these tickets on a first come, first serve basis with an emphasis on providing sliding scale tickets to youth, people experiencing homelessness, folks who are unemployed, elders, people with disabilities, people of color, and those with children.

GJL strives to make our spaces radically accessible. Melrose Market is wheelchair accessible.
