Trans and social justice activist Jazzie Collins died unexpectedly on Wednesday, 07.10.2013. The Trans March brought her friends together at El Rio, to share what they’re feeling about losing her on the following Saturday, and the outpouring has gone well beyond the trans community, to the LGBT and social activist communities, and those who were just used to Jazzie's radiant presence at events and on the streets of San Francisco.
