TransAmsterdam is a trans organization for art, culture, and lifestyle. Our goal is to increase the visibility of transgender, including non-binary, people and improve their image through art and culture. Are you an artist and do you want to share or develop your talents? Or would you like to meet other people in and surrounding the transgender community? Then TransAmsterdam is the organization for you!


With art and culture, we aim to show that trans people are more than their gender. By doing so, we connect the trans community to the rest of society and increase the emancipation and empowerment of transgender people in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and beyond. 


To showcase trans people’s creativity, we work together with a diverse array of artists, such as photographers, actors, poets, musicians, writers, filmmakers, and painters. Besides that, we also collaborate with national and international art and cultural organizations. In 2019, we founded the Trans Art School, where trans people can take part in art, cultural and lifestyle workshops.
