This is an open call for all who identify as transgender, intersex, innersex, genderqueer, nonconforming or gender gifted to submit handmade postcards for the show Trans | Post at the William Way Community Center Gallery, Philadelphia. Now in its 4th year, Trans | Post has received submissions from across the country and is an exhibition comprised completely of work made by community members.

We want to highlight the art and opinions of a diverse range of artists, activists, educators, and community members. We want to see your artwork, your thoughts, your political opinions, your families, your dreams. The postcards do not need to be identity focused. If you an are artist, please feel free to submit a postcard that reflects your current artwork, if you are an activist, a postcard about political issues is perfect, etc.

This show is an open call. If you mail it, we will hang it!


Postcards must be 4"x 6" to be accepted and as thick as cardstock to mail properly. The standard postcard postage rate is 35 center. If you are using collage or deviating in any way from the standard postcard, use a 49 cent stamp. Cards will also be accepted mailed in an envelop if you are worried about postal damage. Because of the scope of the show, any postcards you submit will become part of the William Way LGBT Community Center permanent collection.
