Trans* Visible is a multimedial empowerment project by TransInterQueer, Berlin-based organisation for and by trans*, intersex and queer people. We are happy to introduce ourselves to you by this flyer: http://www.transinterqueer.org/download/Publikationen/TrIQStandardFlyer_13_engl_web3.pdf
Trans* Visible by and for trans, intersex and queer people: knowledge and support for acceptance - against violence. Workshops, empowerment, an archives. An exciting project we've started in early 2015.
