Tue Jun 24 2008 (Updated 07/10/08) San Francisco Pride
The 5th annual Trans Pride March took place Friday June 27th in Dolores Park. There was a concert that started at 3pm with thirty different trans and gender-variant live bands, artists and performers. The march itself began at 7pm, and up to ten thousand people circled through the Castro, down Market and back to Dolores Park for additional music and performances.

The theme of this year's march was "Marching for a Gender Inclusive ENDA", with an objective to bring a focus on transgender civil rights and to celebrate the support of the LGBT family. The keynote speaker for this year's event was Donna Rose, the former HRC board member who resigned over the exclusion of trans-people from the 2007 Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The Trans March was a grassroots community building political event, celebrating and welcoming transgender people of all types, and their supportive allies. The march was a demonstration of trans visibility, inclusiveness, and civil rights.
