Million Trans March 2012

Today was the Million Trans March in San Francisco, which was a march to honor the contributions our Trans community members have made towards the LGBT movement.  This march is also a remembrance of all our Trans brothers and sisters who have past and helped pave the way so our movement can continue.

We started at City Hall in SF and marched to the Harvey Milk Plaza in the Castro where the Trans flag was raised in their honor.

Fun Fact:  It was the members of the Trans community who first rebelled against the police during the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York, thus ushering in a new social era of LGBT activism and pride.  Think about that the next time you see a Trans person and thank them for their courage.
