Tranny March Makes its Debut
Friday, June 25, marked the debut of the first Tranny March in San Francisco, and quite likely anywhere.
Some 2,000 transgender people and their friends and allies -- joined by some 100 Critical Mass bicyclists -- came out Friday evening to show their support for transgender rights and equality. When the march reached City Hall, and altar was set up to memorialize those lost to anti-trans violence. The crowd demanded justice for Gwen Araujo, a transgender teenager who was killed in 2002 after it was discovered that she was born biologically male. A mistrial was declared Tuesday after a deadlocked jury failed to convict Araujo's killers; prosecutors have said they would retry the case.
