Vfest welcomes trans* women

I would like to clarify that Vfest is trans-inclusive, and that it IS for all women regardless of genitals.  In solidarity, I would like to acknowledge the trans phobia/cis-sexism that is perpetrated as part of a systemic problem, and the pain that is caused (by not being included in some women's events, or even just not knowing for sure that you will be welcomed!)  V-Fest will continue to be trans-INCLUSIVE, and will continue towards improving, in hopes that everyone can feel free to participate together in this community event.
