Mid-Atlantic Trans*perience Community (MATC) will host rock band Touch the Sky in concert at Sliders on Friday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.

It’s all part of Allentown-based MATC’s “Trans*perience Weekend #28 Meet and Greet.”

MATA hosts events in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and considers themselves “a safe haven for Transgenders,” with membership encompassing “Crossdressers, significant others of a Transgender member, and family or personal friends of a member.”

Touch The Sky features original rock and R&B music, mixed with jazz, Latin, reggae, and psychedelic elements.

Says Rachel Xaviera, lead vocalist and guitarist for the group, “The band has gone through a lot, especially after I came out, and told them about my transition. But I am so lucky, not only to have found some good friends, but also I get to play with some of the best musicians on the planet!”

The concert is free, but organizers are requesting a $5 donation to Angels Without Wings, or that attendees “bring some last-minute items for LGBTea Dances’ Backpack Drive for foster children.”

Organizers also plan a group photo shoot at 10:45 p.m. of in the lobby of the Rodeway Inn & Suites, and say there will be a not-so-secret meet-up at midnight, as everyone heads down to the Raven for more dancing.

Says MATA, “Our members are fun-loving and compassionate people. Join us for unconditional support and to establish lifetime friendships.”

Sliders is located right inside the Rodeway Inn & Suites of New Hope at 6426 Lower York Road; (215) 862-5221.
