because we're more than a record label ;)
Trans Trenderz organizes and participates in live shows, booking artists of all genres, and making sure that transgender people get on stage. Additionally, Trans Trenderz has hosted a monthly open mic at NYC's Think Coffee, bringing together queer and trans musicians, poets, comedians, and performance artists to support each other's development.
Trans Trenderz got its start as a label when it released a mixtape made 100% by transgender / gender non-conforming artists. This mixtape was a collection of 19 songs released in November 2016. They use the mixtape artform as a way to bring together trans musicians from across the country and world.
