#IWD23 – The Archives

KFAI is making history by celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD2023 with 24 hours of broadcast programming produced and delivered by Trans Women and Transfeminine people on Wednesday, March 8, 2023—starting at midnight on 90.3FM in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, and online at https://www.kfai.org.

This is the first continuous broadcast event where content from Trans Women and Transfeminine people is exclusively featured.

KFAI has a long tradition of celebrating women from all walks of life on International Women’s Day. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #EmbraceEquity, and KFAI is taking an anti-discrimination approach by uplifting the lives and experiences of Twin Cities Trans Women and Transfeminine people to increase understanding, decrease bias, and champion inclusion and acceptance

Trans people have faced nearly constant systemic injustices and public ridicule since the first person who ventured beyond the protective comfort of concealment, seclusion, and silence and was brave enough to share themselves with the world.

Today, society continues to be at war with itself over the acceptance of Trans identities. Because storytelling/story-sharing is a core principle of community building and acceptance, experiencing the lives of others through the act of hearing them tell their stories creates the potential for bridging the gap between fear and love.
