Qmmunity: Transing Pride

ATX Trans Pride puts the spotlight on the transgender community during Austin Pride

When asked about the origin point for August event ATX Trans Pride – happening this Saturday, Aug. 12, 7pm to 2am, at Cheer Up Charlies, with more info avails on fb.com/atxtranspride – organizer and DJ Boyfriend ATX, aka Ezra Edwards, points to a frequent queer motivator: pettiness.

The first ATX Trans Pride bloomed in 2019, following years of Edwards not being booked for Austin Pride despite being a longstanding Bat City trans DJ icon. Making a bit of counterprogramming to the yearly Fiesta Gardens event and parade was, to Edwards, reflective of his time as an Austinite observing the event year after year. "Because I grew up here, I attended the Pride parade when I was out of high school," he says. "For me witnessing, almost like, I don't want to have to say how many years but enough years of Austin Pride, it's like I've changed and it hasn't." Seeing both changes in himself and Austin's growing queer community motivated Edwards to create an event for an unserved need: a Pride completely for and by transgender people.

"I hadn't seen anything like it happen before," he recalls. "[I wanted] to do something more Texas and trans." Centering trans Texan artists was an admirable goal, but Edwards needed help filling out the lineup. That's when he linked up with p1nkstar, whose expertise in the world of trans artistry helped pick a showcase of transgender talent and whose sparkling personality made for a perf host alongside Turito, née Yung Kwane.

So 2019 put ATX Trans Pride on the calendar, and in 2020, COVID caution necessitated a virtual edition – Texas Pride Online, livestreamed and inclusive of the whole Lone Star State. After a 2021 pause on the event, p1nkstar says she picked up the phone in 2022. "I texted or called Ezra and was like, 'Um, can I get involved with this?'" With p1nkstar now on board as the official co-organizer, that year boasted the biggest Trans Pride for Austin yet. "Last year there were way more actual trans people in attendance," Edward says, comparing 2019's crowd to that of 2022. "Even looking back at the photos, I'm just remembering like, there are trans people everywhere here now. It was really cool. We called a meeting and everyone showed up."

Plans for this year's Trans Pride hope to encourage an even bigger trans congruence. Offerings like a vendor market, a podcast taping by ASHwell, a trans comic showcase curated by Max Morrison, drag hosted by Alexander the Great, and musical artists like headliner Ah-Mer-Ah-Su turn the night-owl outing into a day-to-night extravaganza. Both organizers pulled inspiration from outlier queer events like Queerbomb, Dyke March, and San Francisco's own Trans Pride. Yet, "the things that I think about when I think of ATX Trans Pride, I don't know that they're necessarily like clear inspirations," p1nkstar adds, "but it's just a community-centric event that is about celebrating the people that attend, the people that are onstage, and celebrating the trans community and the trans people that are there."

With the 2023 legislative session in Texas delivering heavy blows on the trans community, both Edwards and p1nkstar want ATX Trans Pride to remain a stalwart symbol of strength. "I definitely had some moments like, should we do this this year?" Edwards admits. "[But] it's almost like the backlash is helpful in terms of bringing transness to the forefront. These trans people do exist, especially in the South. By staying visible, we're doing ourselves a service as opposed to folding and not doing the event."

For p1nkstar, Austin Pride season holds a great deal of emotional weight. With no comparable celebrations in her hometown in Mexico, p1nkstar didn't experience Pride until moving to Austin. "I never really had queer, gay, trans, or any community growing up," she says. "The Austin Pride season is a testament to how my life has changed over the years." ATX Trans Pride is her way of preserving that sense of community among other trans folks who need it now more than ever. "I always tell people Austin saved me," p1nkstar says. "And that's why I'm so grateful. I always wanted to continue doing work for the city. Because I found my people here."
