Confronting Transphobia: Transgender Youth and People of Color Fight Back
Date Friday June 01

Event Type Other
Organizer/AuthorNorma G.
Location Details
New Valencia Hall, 747 Polk Street, San Francisco (at Ellis St., use Civic Center BART, or #19, #31, #47 Muni).
From forbidding trans youth to use bathrooms matching their gender identity to banning trans people in the military, transphobia is rampant. The Trump administration is waging an all-out assault on transgender people.
Despite this, transgender youth are joining with immigrant advocates and unions to defend equality for all gender nonconforming people. Their militancy harkens back to the Stonewall Rebellion that sparked the modern LGBTQ movement. What will it take to end transphobia and the system of discrimination used to keep nearly everyone down?

Kristina Lee, Transgender rights advocate, queer Black and Chinese American feminist and antifascist activist will make a brief presentation before discussion.

Doors open at 6pm, Discussion 6:30pm

Door donation $2-5, Light supper available for $7

Hosted by Freedom Socialist Party. For childcare or work exchange call or email.
