If you followed our work during the 2021 Legislative Session, you know it’s been a tough year for trans, nonbinary, and Two Spirit Montanans. On the heels of the session, we want to be very clear: Montana is better because of LGBTQ2S+ people. We have always been here; we will always be here.


This is why we are SO excited to launch Transcendent Joy: A Zine for and by LGBTQ2S+ Montanans. We know we have a long way to go before Montana is the place we want it to be, but we also know that trans joy, queer joy, is nothing short of transcendent. Pride is a revolution, a riot, a celebration of all the work that’s been done and all the work still to come. Pride is a refusal to be ignored. 

If you’d like physical copies to host in your business or community space, please contact Izzy at izzy@forwardmontana.org
