Go Party with the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance Tomorrow

The Southern Arizona Gender Alliance is celebrating its transformation. The newly-independent nonprofit went through a rough patch while Wingspan (which SAGA was a branch of) prepared to close its doors last summer over financial problems.

SAGA's Abby Jensen says they thought this week would be appropriate, since trans actress Laverne Cox visited us on Monday and there is an LGBTQ wellness and health conference all day today, where SAGA will have a table. 

"Part of it is to reintroduce Tucson to SAGA to the fact that SAGA is still here and SAGA is doing great stuff and we want the community to know about us," she says.
 
They also need a better picture of what Tucson's transgender and gender nonconforming community looks like. "There will be paper pads with specific questions so people will be able to write down their thoughts about what SAGA needs to be doing, we can start getting an idea of where we should be focusing our efforts," she says. Reaching out to trans people of color and youth is at the forefront of their efforts, too.

SAGA at the Tipping Point is happening at Fluxx Studios from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. There will be food, beer, wine and lots of music. It's a free event.
