Celebrate with us at the TEN Awards!


Come celebrate our 20th Anniversary at the Trans Equality Now (TEN) Awards on Friday, October 27! Join us in Washington, D.C. for a reception, dinner, and program, stop by for the afterparty, or tune in to our live broadcast online for free. Together, we’ll pay tribute to all we’ve accomplished and envision what’s possible for our future. The last few years have been incredibly challenging for our community, and that's why we're not backing down. We all deserve better, and we won't stop fighting for change!

During our program, we’ll honor leaders in the movement for their impactful work and contributions to our communities, including:

We’re also excited to welcome keynote speaker Alok Vaid-Menon, Writer and Performance Artist.

We can’t wait to celebrate 20 years of NCTE with you.
