As is custom, a rally was held in Dolores Park on Friday June 26 from 3-6PM. Then, the Trans March worked its way through the streets of the Mission into downtown SF. I wasn't able to hear anything about the numbers of people that attended, but the event has gotten progressively larger over the years, especially the past two years. (15 minutes)

Hear transgender activist/musician Ryan Cassata in a short interview, followed by a solo performance on the Trans Pride stage at Mission Dolores Park just before Trans March. Ryan has been at the Trans March at least the past three years, and a strong voice for transgender liberation. (13 minutes)

Since finishing high school about three years ago, he has released several music CD's, performs live with his band and solo, and has devoted much of his life to transgender activism, including speaking at high profile events. He's one of my favorites, I'm glad to have caught up with him for a couple of minutes. His current CD is titled "Soul Sounds." (13 minutes)
