It's all put on by nonprofit arts organization Shunpike, a support network for Washington state’s independent arts groups. Snag a ticket and see what makes our arts ecosystem tick.

Gender Identity in Seattle and Beyond
With trans activists like Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black) and Janet Mock (Redefining Realness) making waves in mainstream media, it's time for the public to learn how gender and identity intersect.
Advocate and social critic Joe Wenke's The Human Agenda looks at the issues that confront trans and gender-nonconforming people. He's the founder of Trans Über, a publishing company (not a ride share network) that focues on LBGTQ rights.
Wenke, trans model and activist Gisele Alicea, and Seattle Children’s gender specialist Aidan Key give their perspectives on the national conversation about gender, politics, and social interactions.
Gender Identity in Seattle and Beyond, Fri, Apr 17, 7:30pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Avenue, $5
Local businesses like Coastal Kitchen (located at 15th and Republican) are using the power of delicious food to fundraise, spread awareness, and build community. They're hosting a fundraiser Thursday evening as a response to the Mayor's new initiative to make Capitol Hill a safe place.
