Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorDavid McElhatton
On the evening of November 20th, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) and allied activists will take the streets to honor those who have been victims of transphobia and to demand an end to violence against the transgender community. The march will follow the Transgender Day of Remembrance Event hosted by SF TEAM at the API Wellness Center and will conclude at the site of the legendary Compton's Cafeteria Riots.

The march is being organized by One Struggle, One Fight (OSOF), an LGBTQ anti-oppression organization. Organizers hope to provide a space for the community to grieve and to deliver a message of empowerment. OSOF member David McElhatton states: "We are congregating at Compton's because it is the site of historic resistance to transphobic violence. This is history that is rarely taught and needs to be celebrated. As trans people, it's important to know that we are not just victims; we are also heroes." OSOF also wishes to carry the message of solidarity, and a united LGBTQ community.
