August K. Clayton (he/they) is a young, Black, trans, grant-writer, and community organizer based in Atlanta, GA. Rooted in Southern Maryland, August began organizing during their first few years in undergrad (2016) around trans student housing, sports, programming, retention, and success.

SaVanna KB Wanzer (she/her) The first project I created for the transgender community is known as TransPride DC in 2007. That is an event with attendance of over 700 attendees. Another part of my vision is called May Is? “All About Trans” In three years it too has become a largely attended event for people under in the Transgender, Gender Non-Confirming, and Non-Binary spectrum that has attracted over 2,500 throughout the 31 days of May. We have moved TransPride DC from under the umbrella of Capital Pride Alliance to keep all trans events together that are for us and designed by us.
On scheduled night in May we have time to discuss issues that focus in our community only. On May 1st we start with a Transgender Summit, and a Latinx one too the next night. We cover topics like HIV vs PrEP, joining the bridge a conversation with cis-gender gay men and the trans community, research, survival sex, employment, education and mental health. We also can’t forget about our youth we try to add them to a chain of mentorship, teaching them to go from the Ball Room to the Board Room. We have built relationships and partnerships with other organizations like Black Pride, Capital Pride, Pharmaceutical companies, Churches, Medical Clinics and any organizations that support the Transgender community.
