The 2nd Annual Trans March will take place Friday June 24th in Dolores Park, San Francisco. Live bands, transgender and gender-variant speakers, drag kings, and musicians will perform from 3 pm till 7 pm, and the March itself will begin at 7 pm.
The Trans March is a grassroots, community-building political event, welcoming transgender, genderqueer, intersex, and all genders of people, as well as allies. It is a demonstration of trans visibility, celebrating the growth of a gender movement. The purpose of this event is to:
1. Demonstrate that the violence and discrimination directed against the transgender community will not be tolerated.
2. Celebrate the struggles of the trans community for respect, acceptance, and civil rights.
3. Build a supportive, unified trans community bringing together diverse genders, ages, ethnic backgrounds along with our allies.
Last year’s historic, first-ever Trans March brought together an estimated 2000-3000 people for an amazing community-driven grassroots demonstration on the weekend of LGBT Pride. This year’s Trans March will offer live bands and performers including punk rock legends Tribe 8 on a sound stage in Dolores Park.
Organizers and supporters of this event include:
Many individual trans community activists
United Genders of the Universe
Transgender San Francisco
