The Ruby Queer Comedy Festival is, at it’s heart, an effort to bring the community
closer together.

If you’re interested in participating in any outreach efforts, please reach out to us at:

With that in mind, we’re working on several charitable initiatives to enrich our community



A portion of our proceeds from ticket sales will go to RAINBOW RAILROAD.
Rainbow Railroad’s mission, courtesy of their website: “In countries all over the world,
lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-identified (LGBTI) people live in basic fear for their
freedom, their safety and their lives. They often have nowhere to turn because their
government and police not only tolerate but encourage this brutality. Rainbow Railroad
exists to help these people get out of danger to somewhere safe. In the spirit of and with
homage to the Underground Railroad, the mission of the Rainbow Railroad is to help
LGBT people as they seek safe haven from state enabled violence, murder or
persecution. Through funds collected by people like you, we’re able to support, provide
information, and help to arrange safe transportation for these LGBT people to
somewhere in the world where they can live their lives in safety.”

TransTribe LA will be facilitating a clothing swap during this year’s Trans Pride (June
16, 2018) at the Village (1125 N. McCadden Place). Since there isn’t a requirement to
trade in old clothes to nab some new to you threads that match your gender identity,
we’re currently seeking donations of new or gently used clothes. That shirt you haven’t
worn in a while, the dress that you’ve grown out of, the suit that doesn’t fit your new
presentation, these and any other clothing options are currently being accepted by The
Ruby during the Queer Comedy Festival. So why not clean out your closet and donate
to someone in need? Plus, any items that remain after the clothing swap will be donated
to the LGBT Center for their homeless youth and senior programs.
The secret TransTribe Los Angeles Facebook group is a safe place to connect and
socialize with transgender, genderqueer and non-binary people in the Los Angeles
area. Members are encouraged to post information about trans positive social events
and opportunities where we can get together IRL, have a blast and build a stronger
community. This is a body positive, gender identity & sexual orientation empowerment
zone! You are perfect just the way you are and we love you just the way you are right
now! To be added to the group, please message one of the admins on Facebook (Billy
White Acre, Heather Barron, Zoey Rose) since it is inaccessible through FB’s search
