Dear friends, we are pleased to introduce Karen Bennett, our new Interim Program Associate at the International Trans Fund. Karen is a talented and experienced artist and activist, with a wealth of knowledge and skills to bring to our organization.
Karen has a long and impressive career as a performer, composer, songwriter, arranger, producer, film scorer, guitarist, and singer. She has been active in the international trans advocacy community since 2010, and has previously worked as the Executive Assistant for Mauro Cabral at GATE. In 2017, Karen had the opportunity to interview Broden Giambrone and Mukasa as they announced the foundation of the ITF, and she has been working as a translator and interpreter for us ever since.
We are particularly excited to have Karen join our team, as she is the first trans musician in Latin America to write a score for a feature film. “El Puto Inolvidable” is a documentary about the late LGBTI activist who started the Pride Parades in Argentina, and Karen’s contributions are sure to make it an impactful and memorable film.
We are confident that Karen will be an invaluable asset to the ITF, and we look forward to seeing all that she will accomplish in her role as Interim Program Associate.
Please join us in welcoming Karen to our team!
