No SB 180 in Lawrence, a group of local activists who have joined together to fight Kansas’ anti-transgender legislation, will host a celebration of trans performers and a call for action on Tuesday.


The group is leading a push to ask Lawrence city officials to take a firm stance against Senate Bill 180, which goes into effect July 1, and codify Lawrence as a safe haven for trans and gender-nonconforming people. Read more about the bill, the group’s efforts and the city’s response in the articles at this link.

“No Place Like LFK” will begin with an open mic at 6 p.m., and the show is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 27 at Lucia, 1016 Massachusetts St.

Performers in the lineup include Party Helmet, Kansas Campbell, LYD, and Monty Protest, according to the Facebook event page. Kimmy Khaos will emcee.

Donations of $5 are suggested, and proceeds will go to the artists.

Event organizers on the Facebook event page thanked Lucia and Balloon Arts “for their solidarity and support in hosting this event.”
