This week I am looking at rituals and experiences that make up the life of trans folks. What role does community play?

My experience strongly contrasts with the current discourse around trans folks being ugly, threatening or unlovable. I found an incredible amount of love and belonging by being in community with other trans folks. As an ancient celebration of fertility and joy, Beltane employs symbols that reflect these feelings; I hope to use them as a vessel for my findings.

What role do rituals play?
