Hip Hop Beyond Gender is a five-part events series that features performances and workshops showcasing the cutting-edge music and art of women and trans Hip Hop artists. Mainstream hip hop may be lacking in female and trans artists, but La Peña, in collaboration with visionary emcee Tru Bloo, seek to prove that hip hop culture is alive and well amongst all genders. Hip Hop Beyond Gender illuminates the inherent connection between Hip Hop Culture and the struggle against misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia. Each event will showcase the impact of music and art by women and transgender people in the hip hop movement.
