Launched as a response to the growing social and economic barriers that plague the trans community, Trans*H4CK shifts the ways trans*, gender non conforming, agender and non binary people live by creating technology that economically empowers, improves access to social services, and promotes gender safety and community sustainability....all while bringing visibility to trans* tech innovators and entrepreneurs.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Oct 20th, 2015 2:27 PM
