We thank to every person and organizations who kept supporting and participating on the production. As always, TransFest is a social platform open to the trans and cis community who may want to reunite, share, and talk about issues affecting and summoning us”.
Williams Viveros, ally of OTD and producer of TransFest says that “every year is special, and we want to celebrate this unique festival in Chile, where at the beginning it was celebrated the right to be and every day we are more ambitious, that’s why this year we also want to emphasize that identities have no borders. For the musical show we always have the participation of big artists and allies who work with us, from volunteers to consecrated musicians. The spirit doesn’t change, but we have a better structure every time”.
It is important to say that the official poster was designed by the illustrator Camila Palaveccino, who says “I wanted to transmit the contention and support sensation existing inside the OTD community. Representing in some way the love and respect that there is in this network formed by everybody. I think it is one of the nicest things I was able to learn from friends is that you’re not alone”.
