What Is the Trans Artists Collaborative (TAC)?

In the fall of 2022, the UW Green Bay Weidner Center for the Performing Arts provided a unique
opportunity for area artists and creatives to come together to stage “Unhinged”. It was an opportunity
for artists to “think and create outside of the box”. The mission of BACGD is “to provide support,
education, and advocacy for transgender persons, their families and allies”. With this opportunity a
group of trans artists and creatives come together to consider ways in which art, in its various
expressions, might be used to help BACGD carry out its mission. What emerged was the organization of
the Trans Artists Collaborative (TAC) and the first offering of The Transperience. Members of the TAC are
also exploring other ways to use art, innovation and creativity for support, education and advocacy on
behalf of the trans community and its allies.


The Transperience includes various transfeminine works of art, multimedia images, soft sculptures,
apparel, voices, and interactive opportunities in the form of an immersive sensory art experience. All
who entered into it received a glimpse into the transfemme experience, its joys and challenges.  
Following its successful premiere as part of Unhinged, it was then staged for a week at the Mulva library
of St. Norbert College
in De Pere Wisconsin in October 2023. Additional bookings will be announced
through this website and you can stay in touch by getting connected to the BACGD newsletter. To learn

Members of the TAC will also be working on:

  • Creation of a “Trans Christmas Tree” as part of the Festival of Trees annually held at the National Railroad museum in Green Bay. The tree will be on display from Mid November through early January for guests of the museum and the popular “Polar Express” to enjoy.

  • Working with the trans youth of the Bay Area Trans Youth Alliance (BATYA) to create an artistic “trans door” that will be included in a special LGBTQ+ installation called “Our Voices” at the Neville Public Museum during the winter and spring of 2024.

  • Design of a parade float for the BACGD unit that will be marching in the May 2024 Milwaukee Pride Parade.
