Wednesday, the transgender community saw a devastating setback on their path to full equality. Obama administration guidance protecting trans youth in public schools is no more. The Trump administration continues on its path of intolerance and hate, and because of that we must all stand up together for all members of the trans community including those who consider themselves as gender non-conforming, cisgendered, bi-gendered, Two Spirit, intersex, cross-dressers, queer, non-binary, drag kings or queens, queer, questioning, as well as the GLB community. Trans folks of color are at particular risk due to the actions of the current administration and we stand proudly with them. Minorities are at risk under this administration, and this is why we must unite, we must march! We will be hosting speakers, please contact Kevin Borrini Morrison if you would like to be added to the lineup. We will be meeting at the corner of Roscoe and Halsted in the parking lot of the 7-11. Speeches will begin at noon, and at one we will take to the sidewalks marching down Halsted. Invite all, share this far and wide. The movement unites this Saturday in Boystown. We will not allow Trump to move this country backwards.

There is a large Latinxs Against Trump Protest at 2PM in the loop, and in solidarity with this event, we will begin marching at 1PM to allow supporters to join in on this event. https://www.facebook.com/events/250986221999501/
