Dundee will play host to its first Trans Pride event in the spring.
Organised by Trans Pride Scotland, it will be the group’s second march and fair after the inaugural event in Edinburgh last year.
The family-orientated festival will take place at the Bonar Hall on March 30.
The event follows on from the success of Dundee Pride, which saw thousands of people descend on the city centre last summer.
Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression which differs from their assigned sex.
In order to help fund the event, the group has set up a GoFundMe donation page, where people can contribute towards the cost of renting music equipment, tables and chairs and travel costs for performers.
A spokesperson for the festival said: “Last year’s march in Edinburgh was a runaway success.
“We expected 150 people to attend and we got 500.
“It was absolutely amazing to celebrate and protest about our rights to exist in this world.
“We were so overwhelmed and excited, but determined to make the next one and the one after just as awesome, if not better.
“Trans Pride Scotland aims to march in a different location every year around Scotland.
“We want to go everywhere, and give everyone the opportunity to march by our side – to have a taste of what it feels like to walk among your community and dance to the music.”
So far the group has raised £80 of its £3,000 target.
Co-chair of Dundee Pride, Tim Kelly, said: “We’re really looking forward to this event and we want to help support Trans Pride Scotland as much as we can.
“We reached out to them this week to see if we could help and I like to think they saw the success of the first Dundee Pride last year and that encouraged them to come here.”
More information will be released on the Trans Pride Scotland Facebook page.
