Transgender Day of Visibility (March 31) is an annual day of celebration of trans lives, trans resilience, and trans visibility while also fighting transphobia and discrimination against trans and gender diverse communities. To celebrate and bring awareness to the trans community to UNO, Dominique Morgan will bring her unique musical talents and storytelling to an hour and a half workshop.
This workshop will weave musical performance and narrative, with a 30 minute time for Q&A. Dominique has released several albums, her most recent entitled Pisces in E Flat Major.
