Queer Social Club’s TransMission Brings the Best of Trans and Queer Art to Seattle and Your Mouth!

TransMission is a showcase of trans and gender queer artists being held at Seattle’s Washington Hall on August 3rd and 4th. Presented by Queer Social Club, doors are at 8:30 with both shows starting at 9pm.  Each evening  is totally unique,  featuring the best of queer performance art, film, poetry, burlesque, puppets and aerial  artists.  Not only can you feast your eyes on nearly two dozen performers over two nights, you can also actually feast on them! The Kitchen Sink Project will be providing concessions packs each evening, small bites and sips designed to allow the audience to taste the essence of each performer and Eat The Show.  Each evening will culminate with a dance party and several special bonus performances.

So join in for two very special and amazing evenings of art, food, drink, dance, identity, possibility and community.  Bring your friends, your co-workers, your family and anyone else that enjoys amazing art!  You can get tickets online (and cheaper!!!) at Transmission tickets here

Guest Bio

Boston Davis Bostian is a nature poet relentlessly bent on transition. He illustrates, through compositions of color, body, and sound, the unbounded fluidity of experimental gender. He spent 19 remarkable months working on the GENDER book, a fun, beautifully-crafted, community-based resource, which is available online in rough draft form here  by creators Mel Reiff Hill, Jay Mays, and Robin Mack.  

He is the manager/facilitator of Genderpedia.net, a resource wiki which began as a component of the GENDER book Project for the purpose of giving community the opportunity of co-authoring the full-length version of the GENDER book. Genderpedia.net is no longer officially affiliated with the GENDER book Project, though a huge fan, always. Boston is currently working on his first poetry collection, TransPoetica_1: The Pre-Op Version, which is the first of a trilogy of poetry manuscripts. Titles for the second and third collections are: TransPoetica_2: The Post-Op Version, and TransPoetica_3: The Final Cut. The trilogy is intended to document Boston’s physical, spiritual, and emotional transition(s) while performing his own personal gender.
